It is a huge PITA to interface through shiboken when you have a C++ application using QT and you provide some boost-python wrappers or have legacy C-python wrappers for domain-specific code. The way shiboken+pyside are structured now, you are in for a world of pain when embedding python in a native QT application as opposed to driving the app from python scripts.

For the benefit of the conversation, this link is a useful one:

I'd love to see such stuff being added to something like xdress: 
http://xdress.org/, building on the pile of existing work that exists in 
this area. Essentially the existing libshiboken is used in conjunction 
with a more sane binding generation tool.
