Process your .ui files before committing them: fixuifiles

Qt Designer generates .ui files with a few problems:
* Too high "required Qt version number" when using a too recent Qt Designer
* Hardcoded untranslatable Alt+Letter accels (auto-added by Qt Designer)
* Captions that are equal to classname (auto-added by Qt Designer), which bug translators.

All of this can now be automatically fixed: just run the script fixuifiles
(after installing it from kdesdk/scripts) every time you are about to commit .ui files.
