[PyQt] Virtualenv script for PyQt snapshots

I extended virtualenv to download, compile and install the latest sip and
PyQt snapshots.
You can get the script at

Virtualenv (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/virtualenv) copys the Python
interpreter into a new separate directory.
It is normally used for testing and deployment because it uses its own
site-packages directory and does
not interfere with the system installation.
So it is a very nice tool to test the new features of PyQt snapshots :-)

Of course it is still required that you have installed the various
development packages
(on Debian/Ubuntu: apt-get build-dep python-qt4).

This is the first version and more or less a proof-of-concept. There is no
error checking. It does not support Windows and MacOS.
And there is a problem with compiling if sip.h is already installed anywhere
else (on Debian/Ubuntu: apt-get remove python-sip4-dev).

Nevertheless I thought some people might find it useful.
