[PyQt] How to link a dict and a QComboBox

I'm facing a problem with data from a SQL database and my GUI.

Let's assume I have the following key => value dict:
sqlresult = {1: 20080909, 4: 202020, 5: 'bla', 6: 'blubb'}

How do I link it to a QComboBox?

In HTML this would be the standard <select> procedure:
	<option value="1">20080909</option>
	<option value="4">202020</option>

As far as I know there is no such thing like "value" for a QComboBox.
My guess would be to create a dict that links the two objects. Then I
could basically do something like this:
selectedValue = sqlresult[CBIndexToKey[QComboBox.selectedIndex()]]

But I feel a little bit uneasy about this... isn't there a better way?

(Sorry Phil!)
Do I just click "Reply" and change the receiver to
pyqt at riverbankcomputing.com? I don't understand how programs like
Thunderbird create the (very useful) thread-like view and don't want to
break this feature ;)
