It could. There is some preliminary code for Qt3 at
and I'll start porting it to Qt4 when work on PyQt4 has begun.

PyQtUI is an implementation of pyuic in Python. It supports both code generation
and creating interfaces from the UI files.

I've posted the code to the list some time ago (in April I guess), but I guess
there are no projects using it. However, Phil has said that pyuic should be
ported to Python for PyQt4. Does that still hold? Using that code, you get the
other mode for free.
