How does PyQT have a greater depth of support? What capabilities are you 
talking about? This is pretty vague stuff. The PyQT releases don't 
appear to be in SVN or any other type of publicly available version 
control, so it's pretty hard to tell how often it's updated (i.e. 
developed). Where is this information about its development coming from? 
The mailing list?

I have seen one really cool PyQT application, so I'm not dissing 
it...but I also won't make a judgment with such limited info.
