Makes sense.

I do a fairly substantial amount of automated updating / building / testing
of Qt as it evolves.  PyQt is an integral component of my system and I use
it with the Mayavi2 tool suite integrated in Sage.

I'd be willing to forward any bugs like this if it helps... I could send
them to the main PyQt list although it might be more noise than signal if
I'm the only one working with the bleeding edge Qt repos.

I'll post them if you like, or send them somewhere else if you want a heads
up on issues I find.  Or not... let me know if you'd like these bug reports.
