A new SIP and PyQt stable are out and PyKDE now requires it and checks 
for it in CMakeLists. Although annoying, not using SIP/PyQt snapshots 
during the 4.4 dev cycle would have required dropping most of the new 
changes to Plasma which depend on new functionality in Qt 4.6. This is 
really one of the risks of KDE requiring a bleeding edge Qt 
functionality (4.6) which wasn't released until quite late in the KDE 
dev cycle. Other things like PyQt depend on Qt and don't get much time 
to react and be updated once a new Qt version is out.

You'll have to ask Richard Dale since this error is in smoke and not PyKDE.

A strict ban on header file changes during the RC phase would be a good 
way to help reduce these kinds of last minute problems. Even in these 
late stages the plasma team are still stuffing around with their (new) APIs.
