Wouldn't it be possible to use a single backend compatible with both
PyQt and Pyside ?
Other projects (enthought, ipython, spyderlib) seem to be able to
handle the issue by importing from a proxy qt module that does the
right imports and handles the incompatibilities. The preferred backend
is set through an environment variable.

I've just noticed that its possible to use an external package as a
back end so I moved my changes into their own package. This is
sufficient for my own use but I'm guessing others may find is useful
as well (and it might speed official support).
Attached is the package. (pysidempl)
