[PyQt] Splash screen and WindowStaysOnTopHint flag

I was under the impression we always needed to do:
from PyQt4.QtGui import *
from PyQt4.QtCore import *

If QtGui imports already QtCore is it not redundant ? If so, what would be the "right" way to do it ?

The QtCore module is always loaded. If you import the QtGui module the
first thing it does (after importing the sip module) is to import the
QtCore module.
