[Baypiggies] Qt with Python-based API strategy?

I am really impressed with PyQt.  I'd really like to hear if there are 
problems with it before I sink a lot more effort into my PyQt coding.  
The drawbacks may or may not apply to me as I am mostly interested in 
doing rapid prototypes.  If I come up with a really compelling app, I 
can always port it back to C++ as needed.

Mostly I am impressed with QT.  I don't believe in hand-coding GUIs and 
the QT Designer works great without locking me into a huge IDE like MS 
Visual Studio or even Eclipse.  I tried Boa Constructor but it seemed 
very rough compared to the QT Designer.

I hope to become more active with Python and BayPiggies starting this 
summer -- currently finishing up some College classes and working full 
time. Maybe we could start a little PyQT sub-group.  I found setting up 
for PyQt development with all the prerequisites was a bit tricky - 
particularly on my old Redhat-9 system. Maybe a Virtual (or real) PyQt 
install-fest would be in order this summer.

Has anyone had problems installing new versions of Python on Redhat 
systems?  Touching the Python setup is scary for me as a beginner since 
many of the Redhat system configuration utilities depend on Python.
