Maybe I can put my copy on Ebay and see how much I can get for it now.

Another option is to do a PyQt version of the Somerfield book. It's based
on Qt3, the license allows it and the source is available (although in an
unusual form). As Boudewijn can testify, it is a lot of work to write a
book, but maybe "porting" an existing book is much easier.
