Hi Thomas,

My assumption at the moment is that PySide Mobility is at the moment 
pretty much unmaintained. It was a major part of the Harmattan Python 
project, but now that no new development is being done for that, I don't 
think anyone is currently looking after it. I wonder would you be 
interested in picking up the ball? :-)

I've planned to migrate PySide Mobility to the Qt infrastructure as 
well, but have delayed that until the migration of PySide proper is 
complete (still unable to file new bugs in Jira against PySide).
