I made a mistake and “updated” to OS X 10.9 and PySide can no longer be imported.

So I reinstalled Qt and Python would crash instead. I then reinstalled PySide 1.1.1 and it is back to the above error.

As far as I know I can’t revert back to OS X 10.8 (which would be nice as it broke other applications as well), but from list traffic it appears that others are using PySide on 10.9 so my question is: how?
