Look at PyKDE/contrib/kdepyuic (it's pretty simple) for changing QApplication 
to KApplication. You need to add the necessary imports, of course (kdecore at 
a minimum, probably kdeui, others depend what you're doing but kdeui covers 
nearly all of the widgets).

Probably not a good idea because KDE applications don't always use the KDE 
variants of Qt widgets - there are cases where it's probably not desireable 
to do that. That's a matter of programmer choice, and the KDE variants don't 
necessarily map well (eg KDialog or KDialogBase vs QDialog).

KApplication is really the only thing that matters since it pulls in the 
additional KDE stuff (locale, standard directories and other "standard" 
stuff) that makes something a "KDE applicatlon" rather than just a "Qt
