This is my ideal situation. Nokia's plan for Qt as a tooklit is for
'Qt Every where" I do not see how they can do that without active
Python support. It seems like at least a necessary business decision
to have the primary driver behind PyQt onboard for the future. I am
pretty sold on Python and on Qt, so this would benefit me

And I empahisze with Jim and having to deal with whinners. They get
into every open source project and drain the lead developers of their
drive -- it's pretty unfortunate. I hope Jim does what is best for
him, as much as I would like an LGPL PyQt at some point soon.

I wouldn't even ask that much of him as I feel that he owes me nothing.
