   Distributing a GPLed program and QT2 on the same medium is perfectly
legal, thus there is no contamination. What is not tolerated is mixing
QT2 and some GPL code to form a new piece of software. One might call
this contamination, but it does not contaminate _other_ software.

Only try to remember the truth : there is no Cabal.
