Oh joy.

Perhaps you could give me another hint.  I'm confused by the docs at

I don't understand how to specify selection and text format for
ExtraSelection elements: the ExtraSelection class seems to have neither ctor
nor settors.

In other words, I want to do::

    e = QtGui.QTextCursor
    cursor = QtGui.QTextCursor()
    extra = w.ExtraSelection()
    extra.setCursor(cursor) #### Doesn't work.

but how do I set the attributes of extra to match cursor?
