[PyQt] Equivalent of Q_PROPERTY's MEMBER for pyqtProperty?

As I remember it's a mess but that sounds like my @pyqtify (oh what a bad name...) Decorator for @attr.s classes.  I use it to create signals so my attrsmodel (for tree views) can be backed by attrs classes.


Basically for each attrs attribute it creates a property (Python by default, you can specify pyqtProperty instead if you want).  The property is used to emit a signal on change.  A separate object is created to house the signals and is accessible via epyqlib.utils.qt.pyqtify_signals().  In my case mostly I don't write that much because it's just backend in my model.

Hopefully someday I'll tidy up my library so it's a bit easier to follow and try out.  Sorry.
