I think one of the main reasons Qt was released under LGPL was that Nokia 
isn't as dependent on the paid licenses as trolltech was. Which leads to: As 
soon as riverbankcomputing gets bought by a big company or becomes a big 
company itself, they will have an easier decision about LGPL.

But when you are making money with your (presumable) closed-source pyqt app, 
why should the makers of pyqt go for free???

Have fun,
