Its not a technical, but a legal limitation. That is you're not allowed
to make money off any code you've developed with the open-source version
of Qt (or PyQt for that matter).

Because so far there's little interest in that I think, plus PyQt4
doesn't use distutils/setuptools and hence one would need to change the
buildsystem first probably.
