I wasn't suggesting this would replace the existing subclassing.

What I'm suggesting is that you could have some function which returns a 
class which you could then subclass, e.g.

MyDialogBase = qt.LoadUI('foo.ui')

class MyDialog(MyDialogBase):

    def foobar(self):

Personally I think this is a lot nicer than having generated python code 
in my source tree. It means that someone could run a python script and it 
would just work, without having uic and so on installed.

If this is what QWidgetFactory does, then that's great!
