Fair enough. I've been using PyQT with Qt/E v3 for over a year now on a home 
project --- a little Linux jukebox, video player, and karaoke machine that I 
put together.  The only reason I'm using Qt-Embedded is because I wanted to 
use the framebuffer device instead of X11; the issue of resource usage hasn't 
come up because the box has plenty of resources.

Attached is a better patch for PyQt-x11-gpl-snapshot-20040719 to build with 
libqte-mt. The changes to configure.py and build.py were straightforward. I 
made changes to 2 sip files, trying to do it cleanly to support QWS and 
non-QWS platforms. Please let me know if the style of those changes in 

I have similar patches to enable support for qte-mt for PyQt-x11-gpl-3.5 and 
sip-x11-gpl-3.5, which I had been using until recently.  Are you interested 
in patches for those versions of PyQT and sip?
