Maybe these don't need to be wrapped at all. There's probably no need to
do everything in Python.

Having said that, I'm not sure why you need shared_global.h. I only have
the faintest idea of what QDesignerIntegration does, so I couldn't say
whether you could avoid using it. I just don't know how all the pieces

Unlike the Qt 3 version, Qt Designer in Qt 4 was supposed to be designed
so that it could be integrated into other environments, so I'm slightly
surprised that you still require private headers to get it working with
KDevelop. :-(
