Oh, agreed. But once that happened (about 18-20 months ago IIRC) their  
agendas were pretty much guaranteed to collide. It's unfortunate that  
they couldn't reach an agreement.

Indeed, though with the amount of manpower they're dedicating to the  
PySide effort, I don't imagine it will be long.

One thing that is a pain in the neck is the boost::python dependency,  
which is sufficiently annoying to install on its own. Oh well.
