Yeah code duplication is the worst possible sin you can perform IMHO, so that 
scheme was outright rejected without even minor consideration.  Since these 
enums will be added to actively that duplication would have become a 
liability much too quickly.

Not sure if I get this part?  I see that designer writes back the accell and 
the text, but I am not sure if this is a problem at all.  Since in the 
generated code the proper method is called in KPushButton that sets the 
correct stdguiitem.

Yeah, I'm not really sure how much of my original code is left in the tool, 
but from what I can see its even more useful for extracting the view 
component of an application out of widget code.  The more widgets we move to 
use the stdguiitems vs plain gui items the easier the conversion will go, 
since the stditem property will be set.  This is because there is no way to 
work back from a GUI item to a standard gui item.  While annoying in this 
instance its not horribly useful, or efficient code wise.

Happy hacking.
