[PyQt] XORing options and result type

I want to raise an issue that has been raised before and which I'd like to see 
in a FAQ or some other place.

If you combine options with XOR or other logical operators the type 
information is lost and python will raise the following when given in a 
method call:

    self.setupGUI(KXmlGuiWindow.Default ^ KXmlGuiWindow.StatusBar, xmlFile)
TypeError: argument 1 of KXmlGuiWindow.setupGUI() has an invalid type

I had to find old source code to get to the solution:

    KXmlGuiWindow.Default ^ KXmlGuiWindow.StatusBar), xmlFile)

I remember either Phil or Jim answering on this issue once but a quick scan 
through May - June didn't give me any result, neither did Google. Is this 
worth mentioning somewhere?

Was there an issue that wouldn't allow those methods to just accept an int
