Yes, right now I do the same (I have, in my /usr/local/bin a script called 
pyqt that exports the library paths and runs python; and the she-bang line on 
my scripts are '#!/usr/bin/env pyqt')

Also, on a limited memory device like this, is this really the way to go?  I 
don't think that if we use qt-x11 it will conform to the save theme that 
Qtopia apps will use, and there will be a _lot_ of duplicated functions loaded 
in memory (qt-x11 and qtopia are practically the same).

Ah, good to know.  I should try it on my side (I believe my version of pyqt 
was built against 4.3.2 whereas the libraries are 4.4.1; they should be binary 
compatible, but I'm sure there may be a few quirks).
