Sorry about that, and thanks for testing it.  If people are interested in a 
tool like this, I can make the script more robust by examining the ui files 
that it fails on.  Which ones are they?

If anyone else has tested the script, I'd be interested in hearing about the 
results (especially failures).

Does anyone know if Designer in Qt 4.4 is going to produce less obfuscated 
rich-text encoding?  It would be great if we didn't need this script at
