I'm still kind of putting it together. Most of the functionality is there, but 
there are some things I still have to add (like automatically converting .ui 
files to .py at install time).

Are you planning to integrate this stuff with Eric3?

Most of the setup.py stuff is KDE specific. The Qt-designer stuff is also KDE 
specific, but that can be easily fixed. To be honest I don't really know what 
the installation requirements are for Qt programs. I'm refering to things 
like paths, docs and other things.

Concerning Qt programs, what would be cool is if someone could compile and 
package up the native GPL Qt port and PyQt on Win32, and slap a user friendly 
installer on top of it all. http://www.diotavelli.net/PyQtWiki/GPLPyQtWindows
The setup.py stuff should then be extended for Qt apps, so that it works on 
*nix correctly, but also uses a graphical installer on Win32. A cross 
platform "application template" would be awesome.

Seriously, is there anyone out there who wants to do this? I don't have the 
time or knowledge of windows to really do this myself.
