I'm not an egg expert either, but I do know that you can use extension
modules with them. lxml for example links against libxml2 and provides a
python interface on top of it. It uses pyrex for the wrapping part and
is available as egg on cheeseshop.

I think the most problematic part for getting PyQt as egg is integrating
the PyQt buildsystem (and sips probably too) into the setuptools.
