I doubt that any company on earth would save £350 and change programming 
language. This kind of decision is made by amateur programmers that just 
want to play around with Qt, but those can already use the GPL version.

So, no, I don't think that *any* decision with QtRuby can reasoably 
affect the business potential user base of PyQt.
