It won't work. Qt4 is a major upgrade with major differences to older
versions. Besides a mass of changes in the class libraiy itself It comes
with new versions of qmake, uic, and moc. It will take a while to take
those things into account.

Also, Phils policy has always been not to look too closely at beta
software, because playing catch up while in beta phase is more or less a
waste of work.

Then again, Qt4 brings a lot of good things to us Python users -
especially regarding Qt4/embedded. The future is bright!

Merry christmas,
