Nice to see that there are some new classes in the C++ API of Qt5 that
address that already!

classes were already in it.
It is so much more enjoyable to code in PyQt using the Qt classes I
already know and love from C++. I think it should be possible from
interpreter and create Qt objects and inspect them like I do now via

Yes, if it was possible to create items and animate them using Python
in the new Qt Scenegraph, that would be lovely.

Yes, this is *much* needed. I see zlib already in 3rdparty. So it's
packaged with Qt but not exposed as an API.
