i m a bit busy to explain, but you can also use the python version which is installed on sailfish.

Do not forget to install python-devel in toolkit via the nice sailfish icon.

Well I think I've seen Python 3 already in Mer, so most probably it will 
be in Sailfish (or is already). I also think that it is much more 
probable to see PyOtherSide on Sailfish. On Qt Developer Days happening 
next week in Berlin there is a talk about PyOtherSide by thp so maybe 
there something more will be known (or not).

I think PyQt from Riverbank is rather not the best solution on Sailfish 
- don't know if it is worth to dedicate time for that if PyOtherSide 
will be available. I've recently met in Prague some guy who developed 
his apps with PySide on Meego and now is trying to rewrite them to
