In short: I'm looking for a way to tell pyuic5 in which package my
generated resources can be find, since it obviously can't know this,
from just looking at the
in the .ui file. The above is a relative file path from the .ui, added
by Designer, while my imports statements should be relative to the
Python package path, which is orexplore.gui.resources.
