Its always nice to hear about alternative techniques that make my current 
standard practice look stoneage... do you have any public documentation about 
how this works and why it is good?

For the occasional custom widget on a pyuic form we either insert an empty 
QFrame and manually create the widget inside it, or insert a QLabel 
placeholder that gets manually replaced. All stoneage stuff I guess....
