If you test sip 4.10.5 by chance, it would be nice to leave a brief note 
about the outcome. As long as you replace (qscintilla, if you use it), sip 
and PyQt, the probability of a bad influence on your system is pretty 
small. Replacing PyKDE aka kdebindings4 might not be that easy, though..

I might even get around also building Ubuntu packages in openSUSE build 
service one day... Various openSUSE builds are available here:
