I disagree, its common to hide "generated" files from the project view
in modern IDE's. The reason is that those files need not be touched by
the user. For the python code generated from .ui files I don't see a
reason to move the files around or to put this into a version control
system. The only thing where it makes sense to have the project
management system know about such generated files is when creating a
tarball or some other package from the project for distribution.

At least an option to hide generated files would be really cool in
