It seems like a slightly experimental version. At present it requires QT (as 
any DCOP facility does), and implements a small set of QT bindings for the QT 
classes that DCOP requires to be serialised. Trouble is, this 
mini-QT-bindings module is called 'qt', so the first thing that happens if 
you install dcoppython is that it overwrites the Phil Thompson QT bindings if 
you have them installed.

My plan is to fix this up, tidy up the code and remove the dependency on QT 
*bindings* (but not on QT itself, obviously), so that a lightweight Python 
DCOP facility is available for KDE (and can be shipped with KDE) without 
PyQT/PyKDE (which are not, and as far I as know there are no plans to).
