Nope.  I pretty much wrote the QPL, and it's not GPL compatible.  A
simple grant of permission from the AbiSource people will take care of
any problems.

Whether or not this is a flaw in the QPL or the GPL is a matter of some
debate.  I personally think the GPL is intentionally antisocial when it
comes with any license that isn't the GPL.  Even that is contested, let
alone questions of whether or not it's a good thing (which I have mixed
feelings about..)

(BTW, I despise gnome.  IMO it's a bug-ridden piece of crap that's flawed
by its very design---and I don't expect it to change anytime real soon.)
