I've only barely tinkered with PyQt.  Because the Qt C++ classes make it
just as easy to write C++ as most scripting languages, I find it almost
just as easy to write in C++ now as perl/python.  Which is a very
interesting statement in itself: The Qt core base classes provide such a
good, powerful fast structure that the things that really made the
perl/python scripting languages faster (text parsing, hashes, etc) are
now *almost* as easy to write in C++.  Plus you get the native speed
boost, which in the end usually tips the tables.  I can almost always
tell when an app runs on my phone weather it's native Qt or pyqt.  It's
not significantly different, but until I stop noticing it...

Yeah, I've been told by lots of android developers that I need to give
eclipse a try again.
