yes and no :-()

If I read the information on the website correctly, I can restrict the
import of modules to certain executable files (how to do this for our cad
system integrated interpreter is another issue). This is similar to
compiling the pyqt modules statically into a python interpreter. But using
this interpreter the user would still be able to write pyqt applications
hence violating the license of qt and pyqt (commercial).

Well, I am just not sure how cautios we have to be to avoid users using
the pyqt libs for development. Here, imho, the documenation is slightly
lacking about possible solutions one has to use.

Anyway, I will have a closer look at vendorid on monday.... using the
module might help more than just reading the docs....

cu, Michael
