The problem is compiler versions. WebEngine needs MSVC2013, Python3 is 
(currently) MSVC2010 and Python2 MSVC2008. Work is going on to eliminate 
the compiler version problem once and for all with MSVC2015.

There is nothing in PyQt that prevents you using your own Python build 
using MSVC2013 - but it's not supported.
