I don't see how the KDE people have much right to complain.  1. It's
RedHat's money.  2. If they really have a problem with not getting money
from Redhat, they could start porting their Qt stuff to gtk and helping the
project to make gtk-- better.

I still think that KDE has all the right in the world to exist and under the
GPL license too (though it's apparent now that the KDE people need to
specify along with the GPL that they allow the linking of Qt in order for
them to be on the most solid legal footing)
