I agree with Sebastian. Since the version numbers are so close now, I think it
would be smart to keep them in sync with Qt from now on. I don't know Phil
expects a major rewrite of PyQt (if ever) before Qt5. Intermediate PyQt
releases (bugfixes etc.) could be tagged in a different way, like with a letter
(PyQt 4.2a, 4.2b, 4.2c and so on).

I think the confusion is also bigger since the user has also to track SIP
dependency and its unconnected version number. It's even more confusing since
SIP is "4.x" too!
