I downloaded it all right from there site, Qt<->python converted html 
docs as well (except ODBC, on win32 I use pyscopg).

Know matter how you look at it, This is a GREAT DEAL, just for the 
Qt/pyqt license issue's alone!
The kompany has put together a good deal with Trolltech and riverbank 
for python users. $79 personal and $399 commercial with rights to 
distribute the run-time elements.
I guess one could stick with straight c++ and pay trolltech $2,000 plus 
per developer instead if you wanted to :)
(opps, for win32 platform development might want to spend another grand+ 
to compile with MS VC++ compiler)
