Glad to hear it, although the official calibre release comes with all
its dependencies bundled. The need is only for building your own calibre
packages, or for someone trying to build calibre from source on Debian.

No, calibre does not use QScintilla. The only reason I mentioned
QScintilla in this thread is that Phil recommends using its configure.py
as a template for other people writing PyQt extensions, and that
template has the SIP bindings location issue I described earlier.
