I would really like to see the QDesignerComponents classes wrapped. A couple 
of weeks ago, I tried it, but gave it up at the end because I didn't have the 
time to do the initial wrapping and maintain it next to the eric4 
development. If Albert (or somebody else) would do the job, I would give him 
a loud applause. 

Please keep me informed.
