Hi all,

When there was a discussion regarding PyQt wishes for Python 3.0 I
proposed changing the mechanism by which you refer to symbols[1] .
Thus something like "QtGui.QApplication" could be refered to as
As Qt does not use namespaces itself, there would be no conflicts of
names. The idea is that you'd then import any module and its symbols
would then be added to the Qt namespace when you've done so. This
system would therefore save on redundant typing while sidestepping
namespace pollution.

Any thoughts on this?
