Cool, I'm just checking the 1.0 branch aus.

Yes, it really should be integrated in the build system (just like moc). But 
didn't Ralph mention earlier, that he basically did that already. Also Coolo 
is working on getting the uic stuff into the KDE buildsystem, but I have no 
idea how close this goes together.

Anyway, the user should never need to call uic manually, it should be 
automated like moc.
