You are absolutely right.  (I always thought of myself as the author of
SIP - PyQt/PyKDE are just ways of testing it.)  I am looking at options
where I could put in place some of the things you suggest.  I think I
was wrong in my earlier decision not to document SIP because I was
changing the API so much - but now is the wrong time to correct that,
because I don't want to slow up Qt 2 and KDE 2 support.  (I hope the
combination of Python and KParts is going to be really powerful.)

What would really help at the moment is some enlightened
company/individual to keep me in food and beer so that I can do this
full time. :)
