Slackware-current python upgrade breaks kde4 printer module

Slackware64-current update on Nov 30th breaks kde4.5.1 printer module.

:~$ kcmshell4 system-config-printer-kde
kcmshell(9368)/python (plugin): Failed to import module
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/apps/system-config-printer-kde/", line 45, in <module>
from PyKDE4.kdecore import *
RuntimeError: the sip module implements API v8.0 but the PyKDE4.kdecore module requires API v7.1
kcmshell(9368)/python (plugin): Failed to import module
kcmshell(9368)/kcontrol KCModuleLoader::loadModule: This module has no valid entry symbol at all. The reason could be that it's still using K_EXPORT_COMPONENT_FACTORY with a custom X-KDE-FactoryName which is not supported anymore

:~$ ls -l /var/log/packages/python-2.6.6-x86_64-1
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 227811 Nov 30 22:14 /var/log/packages/python-2.6.6-x86_64-1

Is there a quick easy fix for this?

Nope. It's not a python problem but sip-pykde's. I think rebuild kdebindings will fix the problem, as long as the kdebindings could build against the new sip/pyqt.

I think we should have to wait just a little: everything looks like Pat is preparing the ground for a kde update in current (I'm talking about the updated qt, pyqt, sip and so on).
