Re: Need GPL exception statement for Qt-using code

   What I need is a nicely phrased "despite what the GPL requires, it's OK to
   link this code against Qt and redistribute the resulting binaries" statement

I would put the following license on each file in the program.  It is
modified from a notice on the files in libio in glibc.

   As a special exception, if you link this program with the Qt library
   by Troll Tech to produce an executable, this does not cause the
   resulting executable to be covered by the GNU General Public License.
   This exception does not however invalidate any other reasons why the
   executable file might be covered by the GNU General Public License.
