..which boils down to implementing your widget in C++, as outlined in 
diverse Qt/Designer 3 docs, add python wrapper with sip, shake well, and be 

I had similar problems with the Qt3 database layer, which uses properties to 
access widget values in sql forms. I got around them by reimplementing 
QSqlForm and QSqlPropertyMap in pure python, which was quite straight 
forward. Sure, that's not an option in your case..

Good luck,
