This was our impression also. This and any other effort towards making
PySide easier to understand, better documented, etc, will certainly go a
long way to making it maintainable.
The worst thing that actually bites us in practice are problems w/
object references and object life cycle (PySide object remains when C++
object is gone, and similar). Since our time is constrained, we've
focused on this rather than something more ambitious like rewriting the
generator in Python.
