[PyKDE] Getting handles on designer created layout boxes

When I create a layout using qt designer, there are often
elements of the layout which are not bound to self when
they are created.  It looks like this ...

class Form1(QDialog):
    def __init__(self,parent = None,name = None,modal = 0,fl = 0):

        Form1Layout = QVBoxLayout(self,11,6,"Form1Layout")

        self.groupBox1 = QGroupBox(self,"groupBox1")
        groupBox1Layout = QHBoxLayout(self.groupBox1.layout())

So, if I want to add something to groupBox1Layout at runtime,
my strategy at this point would be to hack the generated file
and change every reference to groupBox1Layout to

It is not a very good solution, since I may want to go back and
edit the layout with designer again.

Any better suggestions?

Thank you for your time.
