[PyKDE] Using custom components and Qt Designer with QWidgetFactory in PyQt

We've almost fully converted to designing all dialogboxes and other
application windows in Qt Designer to use in our PyQt application, but
I've come into a difficulty with wanting to use custom widgets
created in Python with the Qt Designer designed dialogs.

I've noted a tutorial[1] doing just that by embedding python code into
the Comments field of the form, but that only seems to work when using
pyuic to create python-code from the .ui-files. We use QWidgetFactory
exclusively to generate the widgets runtime from the .ui-files, and
using pyuic would put us back into gui-design stoneage again (gui
mixed too much with other code, and hard to redesign components).

Is there a way to use Qt Designer to embed python-created components
into dialogs etc. when they are loaded with QWidgetFactory inty our
python application?
