You are being deliberately insulting and overgeneralizing to the extreme. 
If I had so very much against KDE and Qt, why the hell did I spend
several weeks hashing out a license that will move Qt into main as soon
as someone packages a 2.x version?

Even then as I was working on it, the Trolls and KDE people figured the
QPL would not solve the problem with GPL compatibility and were talking
about moving to another license which does what they want.  I'm drafting
(or should be, I've gotten busy) a license which addresses all of their
issues and have already agreed to work with them to solve the remaining
legal problems with other GPL code.

Oh yes, I'm part of a grand conspiracy on the part of the gnome
developers and Richard Stallman to destroy KDE by any means necessary. 
That's why I work so hard to fix the legal problems so the KDE coders can
get back to coding and the KDE users won't have to worry.
