The Qt version is part of the PyQt wheel name (as a build tag) - for example,
the current wheels are called PyQt5-5.12.1-5.12.2-cp[...].whl.

If pip treats a wheel with e.g. a 5.12.3 tag as newer (and also treats 5.13 as
newer than that, no matter the upload date of a newer 5.12 wheel), that should
work out well in my eyes.
