As I said in the reply to that email, I don't think is possible to create stub files for PyQt that are "valid". Personally I think that is a fault with PEP 484. If stub files are more trouble than they are worth then I will happily drop them.

What I want is somebody who knows the subject (which rules me out) to look at the issue in detail and suggest changes to make stub files useful.
