I’ve uploaded an initial version, compiled using VS2013x64 for Python 2.7
x64 under Windows 8.1.

But I’ve run into an issue that maybe someone here knows of a solution to.

I also noticed that the namespace “pyqt” was free on GitHub. Phil, I would
understand if you would like this namespace for yourself. That is fine by
me, just let me know and we’ll handle the transfer. Until then I’ll hold
onto it and make sure it doesn’t end up in the wrong hands.

Also, if you have any preference on the notice about this repository or
organisation not being affiliated with your company, let me know and I’ll
type it in.
