Well we have a lot of ui files in by now, and we've no problems with automake.
the problem we had last time were fixes so I don't get why an easy to
maintain GUI should worst than a designed from scratch one.

I believe it's up to maintainer choosing the way he prefers, but
I also believe that it's easier to help in fixing a well designed plugin
when a maintainer can't go on with his work or leaves....

Well why not to start before then? It should be easier when that step must
be done, IMO.
