PySide is unlikely to work with PyPy because PyPy only partially
implements the CPython extension API.

If you want to try nonetheless, you need to manually compile PySide
against PyPy which will be somewhat difficult and cumbersome because
the CMake build scripts of PySide will not detect PyPy out of the box,
so you'll need a lot of tweaking.
