I like the fact that QtCore and so on are submodules of PyQt4, instead of 
top-level modules.  It reduces the chance of namespace clashes, which are 
always annoying.

It seems to me that Python is a bit too lax on the namespace clash avoidance 
issue.  There are too many standard modules with simple names that might 
clash with the user's own modules.  Perhaps they should do like Java and have 
python.lang.*, python.util.* and so on.

Anyway I hope my patch gets accepted, which should solve the problem as far as 
PyQt4 is concerned.
