Thanks for that important point about the archives. I did read it! It
is as clear as mud.
pyKDE is ??? LGPL???
pyQT is not?? and never will be but maybe someone named Phil is still
thinking about it?

That is the best I can tell by all that but really someone could just
be straight and answer my question.

Comes down to if pyQT is LGPL then I write in my fav lang python, if
not then I go back and relearn C++ and face the brackets that I hoped
never to face again. :-)

Anyway answer like that are about as helpful and friendly as RTFM.
