The path is

 - on a commit prior to e1becf46b4e3ba6d7d32ebf4bbd3e0804766a423 install pyqt-sip.  pip will build a wheel for you called PyQt5_sip-12.7.2-cp39-cp39-linux_x86_64.whl
 - on a commit after e1becf46b4e3ba6d7d32ebf4bbd3e0804766a423 if you do `pip install pyqt-sip` pip will discover the wheel from the previous install in it's cache and use it, but the ABI has changed (?) which leads to a segfault.  If you do `pip install pyqt5-sip --no-binary pyqt5-sip` or clear the cache then things work correctly

I suspect that this also means that wheels made with the early alphas will not work future 3.9 (pre-)releases, however I am not sure if that is a problem or not (given that it is all pre-releases).

I am going to close this as I think if there is a bug, it would be better addressed in the packaging space.
