I tried to integrate a KDE widget (KURLLabel) into QtDesigner. But it is more
an ugly hack which segfaults on major operations because there are some
things to handle which I didn't do correctly. I don't know also, whether there
are all the necessary QWidget methods in K* widget classes (however Sandy 
told me they are all generated by moc).
Another way would be to integrate the widgets by using the Tools->Custom
menu point, which works quite good, but doesn't allow preview of the
custom widgets (neither in edit nor in preview mode).
Additionally I'd like Designer to look more like other KDE applications
(maybe there is some way to inherit a KDesigner and make it a KPart).
