Qt for embedded platforms has the concept of "features" which let you remove
things you don't need. PyQt doesn't know about all of these, though it does
have a similar system for declaring what should be included in the bindings.

Earlier versions obviously contained fewer classes, so the library sizes were
smaller, especially for "normal" builds.
