We talked about this at the sprint and decided to look at alternative 
binding tools in conjunction with supporting Qt5.  The goal will be a 
set of bindings that the developers who are currently supporting PySide 
can more easily support and maintain.  None of us were involved with the 
development of shiboken and we would like to look at alternatives.

That said, developer could begin looking at the changes required by Qt 
5.  PySide is developed and maintained by the community and well thought 
out patches and other changes to support Qt 5 would likely be accepted.
