Hmm, I meant to ask this in my reply to Phil, but I guess it makes sense 

So, given all this:

- how do I install PyQt4 and any dependencies it has as someone who 
wants to develop some guis for apps I have?

- How do I package an app up that uses PyQt4 as a double-click-installer 
for non-technical users?
