No problem then...  I've got a commercial license of Qt, but not one of PyQt 
yet.  The license change was a little abrupt and I'm still recovering from 
the surprise ;o)  Anyway, if someone would offer to purchase the commercial 
version of PyQt and serve as the donor system for everyone else here, I'll 
offer my system up as the Qt donor license.

Wait! I can't do that...  The Qt license is a developer specific license and 
any work anyone were to do on my system would consititute development with Qt 
and would not be covered under *my* license.  I suppose if trolltech happened 
to be the "donor" mentioned then it's probably ok, but otherwise you probably 
need to read *your* Qt license a little closer.
