That's absolutely fantastic. Thanks for the continued effort!

How do the bindings work? I suppose you'll need cppyy-based Qt to run
your bindings, correct?

How are you dealing with Python's GC? A major point (and PITA) when
developing with PyQt and PyKDE4 was that a single slip in tracking
objects meant the C++ object would get GC'd under your feet,
causing crashes. This was particularly bad with the Plasma bindings
because they would crash the whole desktop.

I don't mind either approach: FYI though, most major distros are
phasing out Py2-as-default (Ubuntu, Arch, and openSUSE are the ones I'm

That would be great. It was one of the major issues when keeping PyKDE4
up to date.

Can you link the repository with the tools?
