I tried to dig a bit into this, it seems there are 2 things missing for
auto-connection to work:

1. The wrapper for QMetaObject needs to expose connectSlotsByName, this
is in qobjectdefs.sip (and qobjectdefs.h in the qt source).

2. pyuic needs to generate something like:
QtCore.QMetaObject.connectSlotsByName(widget) in the setupUi(self,
widget) function.

However I'm not sure it's that simple, because I don't know how PyQt4
wraps all the Meta-Object stuff. That means, maybe a pythonic
implementation for connectSlotsByName needs to be provided.

Phil can you comment on this, if it's possible to have auto-connection
at all and if you want to do it? (I can provide a patch for pyuic4 to
generate that one extra line of code).


So you're back... about time...
