PySide is in the Qt repository but its development is substantially 
community driven at this point.  I am the somewhat reluctant maintainer 
that hasn't been able to find much time to work on PySide recently.

I don't think the VLC kickstarter is a good model for funding PySide 
development because VLC is a consumer application with many times the 
number of users as direct users of PySide (the developers using PySide, 
not the users of applications built with it).
