Many of the objects in the Carbon.Qt module are typed as Component 
(CmpObj) when the QuickTime API documents them as 
ComponentInstance (CmpInstObj).

This makes it impossible to use GetGraphicsImporterForFile and then 
GraphicsImportGetAsPicture, because the latter is incorrectly expecting a 
CmpObj while the former is correctly returning a CmpInstObj.

Attached is a patch to correcting the incorrect CmpObj typing, 
checked by reference to the QuickTime API docs.

I've applied these patches in revision r70713, the bugfix will be in 
python 2.7.

Also backported to 2.6 in r70715.
