PyQt5 already comes with stub-files, though they are mostly optimized for IDE
completion rather than type checking.

There are community-maintained stubs for mypy here:

Right now, most of the conversions needed are manual, though there are some
ideas on how to further automate stuff floating around.

Phil: You mentioned at some point that the generator part of SIP is being
rewritten in Python as well, correct? I suppose this wouldn't be a good time
for contributions to SIP to improve stubs upstream then? Is there any rough
timeline on a Python-based SIP generator?
