Just to put an answer into the archive:
After some discussion with other python-devs on python-de Mailinglist
wrt to setuptools and data files in general, I decides to do the
for 1. I'm going to let pyuic4 compile the ui files and put the code
into the egg. This is easier to work with and is easier for distribution
packagers to work with.
for 2. I'm going to include the .qm files inside the egg and will either
load the qm file using ressource_string (from RessourceManager API) or
ressource_filename, depending on wether I can get QTranslator::load()
take the string.
You'll wish that you had done some of the hard things when they were easier
