Plans for PyQt6?

Inspired by the thread about qmake, I was wondering what the plans for PyQt6
are in general.

Right now I'm assuming:

- The module name will change from PyQt5 to PyQt6, so applications needing to
  support both will need some kind of wrapper

- There will be relatively few API changes outside of the ones in Qt - right
  now I can only think of unscoped enum access being removed:

- PyQt6 will be released some time after Qt 6 itself, though I guess nightly
  snapshots will work against Qt 6 at some point before that:

Does that sound about right?
