Well, thanks for all the input!

I'm essentially also in favor to have PySide in site-packages.
My enthusiastic mail was more expressing what I like to see
PySide perceived as, without necessarily having it as a super-large
battery. (As a side, the Python Batteries have actually grown too large
already and we need way to strip that down...).

So what I want is to make PySide a very supported, very well acknowledged
package that gets its #1 recommendation from Python, something like that.
I don't want to slow down the development and avoid licensing issues.

But getting many people interested in working on PySide could be a
benefit if it would get its place in Python.org.

Maybe we can move the mailing list there, and or have some announcement
on python-announce that we want to improve PySide and spread the word?
