Hi Jeff,

Thanks for the reply.  I've been using PySide/Qt4 for a bit now and it's 
working great!

But I'm also interested to know about future development -- is it just 
stalled or is it completely off the table?  And why?

Plus I'm also interested to know about the PySide community.  Is there 
still enough support or is everyone already moving on to something else, 
i.e. PyQt?  I know that's a tough question to answer but wanted to get 
some thoughts on this.
