So you can no longer inherit from a designer generated widget?

How do you add member variables, new methods, or include files (that might be 
needed for, eg, the new member variable) without using designer?  By editing 
the XML?  Why is all this easier?  I find it a royal pain.

There is also the problem that the build system doesn't always pick up changes 
to the ui.h file when you edit it (maybe unsermake does, but make didn't).

I'm not saying that we should go change everything.  But I see no reason to 
ask Andrew to port his patch to .ui.h at this point.  

But, for everyone: in the future, don't unilaterally change this aspect of any 

And please revert the revert (or call me).
