No need to get snippy, Rich. That was an honest and straightforward proposal, 
and you could give a straightforward answer instead of making up fantasy 

As it stands, I think I've figured out the question we originally wanted to 
ask, and it is this:

"Is it ok to put the generated C++ code for Qt and KDE bindings for python in 

I think a derived question should be:

"Since kdebindings contains _tools_ to create bindings (doesn't it, mostly?) 
and not the bindings themselves, does it make sense to create a 
kdebindings-dist or somesuch where the results of the tools are stored?"

Reason for this question being, I can imagine people wanting to use the 
bindings more than wanting to use the tools to generate the bindings. That 
would be a quick way to increase visibility of the bindings, and that, as 
Rich points out, would be a Good Thing.

Done. Discussion to move over there (where I'm not subscribed, so please CC me 
back, or even more preferably, CC Simon Edwards <simon at> since 
he brought this up).
