Hi Phil,

I saw while browsing through the sources of the latest snapshot that it 
includes a Python only implementation of pylupdate. Unless I missed 
something this tool seems to extract translation string from Python 
sources only. If this is correct do you intend to add an extractor for 
.ui files as well to be on the same level as the lupdate tool of Qt? If 
that is not the intention and I didn't just miss this, what would be the 
workflow for generation of translatable apps?
