I'm glad the setup.py script worked.

A lot of updates have been made to the Python side of things after the
VTK 4.0 release.  I also updated the README.txt to add the
installation section a week or so ago.  Hopefully a new VTK release
might come sometime in the near future.  Anyway, I think its quite
safe using the nightlies instead of VTK 4.0.  There is an element of
risk but I dont think it is very bad.

Under C++ someone has already done this.  Dig up the archives for this
month or the last month.

If you want to do this using Python there already are PyQt widgets
inside Wrapping/Python/vtk/qt/.  Use them like so:

 from vtk.qt import QVTKRenderWidget, QVTKRenderWindowInteractor
