I don't have experience with C++ extensions on Windows, but, in
general, PyQt programs port very easily, with few differences in
behavior.  See <http://www.xecu.net/dougbell/> for some examples with
files for both systems.

Yes, but check out py2exe
<http://starship.python.net/crew/theller/py2exe/> - it does a good job
of reducing the files to be distributed.  Also, like Phil said, be
careful of Qt's license restrictions.
