Sorry, I'm a bit late - I've only just now recovered from 
reading the interview with Guido in Linux Journal where he
says he thinks PyKDE/PyQt is no longer developed. Yes, to
compile the stuff for Windows you need Qt for Windows. Of 
course, you also need a compiler, and those seem to cost
money, too.

Because the two go together - you did mention PyGTK.

Oh, yes, people will agree with you. I've one regular correspondent
who berates me continually for not writing my apps to run inside
a browser. I don't really care, though - sometimes I need an
application that's integrated with the rest of my work environment,
and sometimes I can do with something standalone.
