I understand but I think it's a really wrong commercial move.
The only reason for that package to exist was that it allowed people to
install a complete PyQt version to experiment with a single click.
Instead, you're now forcing people to go through two different
installers, one of which even poses questions which are absolutely
useless and uncomprehensable for Python programmers which are not C++
I personally saw a *large* increase of interest in Python Windows
programmers since the consolidated installer was released. It would be a
shame to see a regression there.
I really hope you reconsider your choice.
