This would be very helpful!

I have in the past found some of the missing pages on archive.org.  You 
can paste urls there in the WayBackMachine box and see dated archives of 
the page.  It would be great to put back some of that lost content 
(which I think was lost in the Nokia -> Digia transition).

For outdated docs, it seems best to keep them somewhere (an archive 
area?) or clearly label them, rather than removing them for now.  I 
suspect some of these may be helpful to people trying to understand and 
move PySide forward.

Thanks for offering to do this!
