[PyQt] Compile PyQt4 to support both Qt4 and Qt5?

Hello all,

I see that PyQt4 can be built with either Qt4 or Qt5[1] by configuring it
with the right version of qmake[2]. There is also a way to have PyQt4 and
PyQt5 installed on the same system[3].

However is there a way to either:
* have PyQt4 provide bindings for both Qt4 and Qt5 (I'm guessing that's a
no), or
* have two copies of PyQt4 on the same system, one for Qt4 and the other
for Qt5?

I want this so that I can test the FakeVim Qt widget[4] in all three
* PyQt4 with Qt4
* PyQt4 with Qt5
* PyQt5 with Qt5
