PyKDE, PyQt and SIP up-to-date (and in Hoary)

I recently found myself investigating whether up-to-date PyKDE, PyQt and SIP 
packages might either exist or be made available for Kubuntu, and this led me 
to a number of fairly new Debian packages prepared by Torsten Marek:

With some hacked dependencies (and a single patch to PyKDE to enable some 
functionality I find important), these packages work on Kubuntu Hoary, and I 
thought it might be interesting to make these available. However, I see that 
some other packaging work has been going on, yielding some slightly older 
releases with an apparent focus on Kubuntu Breezy:

I also see that since PyKDE didn't get packaged for Hoary, we aren't going to 
see any official release of it at any time in the future:

So, what's the best way to get up-to-date packages for PyKDE, PyQt and SIP 
available for Kubuntu? And what's the best channel to get these packages out 
there for Hoary? I'm willing to put in some effort to make something happen.
