Yes, this has been a long time known problem.  We extend the object
structure with Stackless-specific fields, and so does SIP which is
what PyQT uses for its bindings.  However, the number of complaints
about this since Christian and I last discussed it number exactly zero

If PyQT is the only problem, then I am not sure we need to fix it.
Other problems with PyQT which I am not familiar with have
precipitated the development of PySide.  PySide, as I understand it,
can be interchanged with PyQT with minor changes.

It might be sufficient to encourage people to switch to PySide.

Of course, if you can see a way to easily remove the redefinition, we
should probably look at doing that anyway.
