Now that is an argument I understand. Limited by the freedom of the tools you 
are using you choose not to support it until it is free. I remember in the 
back of my head that Trolltech was trying to do something stupid at one time, 
but finally chose to stay friends with the open source movement. I don't 
think it hurt Trolltech very much taking that decision when you look at 
KDE3.1 some years later.

Did they change the lisence for Qt 1.0 or is it still unfree? I'm just asking 
for historical reason.
