I don't think that answers the (reformatted) question.  From idle the 
sys.hexversion does show some magic number
>>> import sys
>>> sys.hexversion
But even if that number relates to the version of Python, it tells nothing 
about the version of Python at binding to PyQt. The programs that use PyQt 
depend on the version of Python as well as the versions of PyQt and Qt itself.  
It would be helpful to be able to check those versions from PyQt alone.

Having read the reference and having corrected the File Dialog method, the 
dialog works without a hiccup.  Here is the corrected version, just in case 
there are other people on the list that are as negligent as I:

 def open(self):
        filename = QFileDialog.getOpenFileName(
                self, "Open File", ".", "Files (*.*)",

Phil, Thank you for your patience and precise advice. It does mean so much!
Gratefully,  Al.
