Have a look into the attached project. It takes the pyuic approach and
creates one module with all images embedded.

 - Place all images in a project subdir
 - Create a c++ project with designer
 - Select "project imagefile" in form settings
 - Add all images to designers image collection
 - Read the supplied Makefile

Note, that inlining images with designer corrupts their alpha mask in
some cases (especially with hicolor KDE icons).

Let us know, if this approach satisfy you needs.


P.S.: Anybody here with an idea, how to make the mainExceptHook dialog
      appear translated in test.py? All my attempts failed so far.
