[PyQt] .windId() returns sip.voidptr

When using python3 / PyQt5 combination, and calling widget's "winId" 
function, I get sip.voidptr (i.e. a general pointer to something).

In python3 / PyQt4 it used to give the x-window id number, which could 
then be passed directly to the x-window system (this is useful for our 
custom streaming applilcations).

How can I go from sip.voidptr to a plain integer (and I don't mean the 
memory address..).
