[SailfishDevel] Python and Qt Widgets development possible?

Until now I have been using PySide to write Qt Widgets applications that
were running fine
under Windows and Maemo.
With some if/else I got native look & feel on both platforms.
Now I've tried the same with PyQt5 on Sailfish OS and the application looks
like a Windows application and even opens new windows when I e.g. open
Unfortunately it seems that QML is the only way to get native look and feel.
Am I right?
Switching to QML/Qt Quick seems a major effort and especially, it is
to use this mixture of two languages.
Even when I switch, it seems that there's quite some effort to stay
multiple platforms as you more or less have to use Silica components on
and on the other hand I won't gain usability on a mouse based platform
With Maemo I had the impression that it was quite easy to port any GUI
and get at least a reasonable UI. Seems that this is not true with
Sailfish OS any more.
You have to choose between all or nothing...
