[PySide] Start work with PySide2

Hey there,

I have quite some experience with porting PyQt to PySide and in general the
C++ process Cristian described works the same in Python code, making sure
in particular signals and slots follow the PySide scheme and that
difference in operating the app Singleton are catered for. I used to use at
some point even a script that would replace class names and arguments, and
the run the file collecting tracebacks then iterating over them manually to
fix the ‘debris’. The fact the project follows closely the Qt interface
makes this kind of s no brainer and relatively quick process.
