[PyQt] Further cosmetic comments on pyqtdeploy

I assume as you are nearing a 1.0 release, comments of this sort, from a
first-time user, are useful?

Some of the "What's This" entries are helpful to a new user. However when a
What's This label has appeared, it apparently has to be manually dismissed
with a click, and while it is up, it blocks further What's This uses. For
example get the What's This of "Main script file". You are still curious so
you select Help:What's This? and click on another widget. But this has no
effect, other than to lose the "What's This" status of the mouse. (This may
be a failing of the Qt What's This machinery?)

In the Standard Library tab, it is not clear why some of the choices are
bimodal between [blank] and [✓] states, while others are bimodal between
[-] and [✓] states. [-] sometimes seems to represent a dependency
auto-selected, but in a new, empty .pdy file with no PyQt modules selected
and no source script named, many [-] selections are set nevertheless. No
obvious reason why e.g. "threading" or "subprocess" should be [-] in that

Hope this is helpful,
Dave Cortesi
