SIP doesn't support static class variables yet.  I've added it to the
TODO list (I think it's very easy to do).

You should translate it to...

	self.recent_files = self.config.readListEntry("Recent Files")

However, the PyKDE documentation says that it returns a tuple of the
length of the list and the list itself.  I'll fix the documentation
because it's easy enough to get the length of the list in Python.  Also
keep in mind that this particular function is implemented in handwritten
code - so there is plenty of scope for bugs - if you still have
problems, can you give me more detail.

Also on the TODO list.  Do you need KAccel.keyDict() and
KAccel.setKeyDict() implemented?
