Does it mean you are going to provide a package where libQtCore is statically
linked against each of the (PyQt4.)QtCore, QtGui, QtNetWork, QtOpenGL, QtSql,
and QtXml modules?

Will the Qt-designer be included?

Wouldn't it be better to base the Windows version on a separate Windows package
for Qt?  It would be great if the Trolls release Qt4 installers for Windows.
