This should work:

from kdecore import KStdAccel
from kdeui import KAction, KMainWindow

class MainWin (KMainWindow):
	def __init__ ( ... ):


		self.newAct = KAction (i18n("&New"), "filenew",
                                self,  self.fileNew,
                                self.actionCollection(), "new");

	def fileNew ( ... ):

KStdAccel is in the kdecore section in the PyKDE docs (which just lists the 
available members in Python syntax). The copy of the KDE API docs I looked at 
didn't include KStdAccel - you could file a bug report with them if that's 
still the case.

This is easier:

from kdeui import KMainWindow, KStdAction 

class MainWin (KMainWindow):
    def __init__ (self, *args):

          self.newAction    = KStdAction.openNew (self.slotNew,  
                                       self.actionCollection ())

    def slotNew (self,  id = -1):

See templates/annotated/menuapp3.py (templates/basic/menapp3.py for the same 
thing without the comments).
