Qt hasn't adopted a "free" license, yet.  [Though they appear to be
serious about probably adopting one.]

[I didn't vote on any KDE newsgroups but] It's probably worth pointing out
that version 0.90 of the QPL does not apply to any Troll Tech software.
Because of the contradictory nature of this license, I don't expect
anyone to ever use it as a license for any software or for anthing else.

The QPL is barely even vaporware: it's just a draft document.
