Why don't you leave the PyKDE version for 1.1 alone and make a PyKDE2
version.  This way, support for KDE1 stays as it always is.  Maybe just
preface each KDE2 library with kde2?  It sounds hackish though.  I know
alot of classes have changed from KDE1 to KDE2.  Also, alot has changed.
Maybe just the relase name: PyKDE for KDE1, PyKDE2 for KDE2 even if they
share the same classes.  No further development for KDE1 would have to be

I guess I would do what requires the least amout of time which seems to be
the resource that is needed.

Yes I looked at QStringList.  It was just a question of how the other ones
are referenced in the .sip module.  I'll look at the sip code.
