I know this was brought up in previous LSB meetings, but I was
wondering if the concept of having a "GPL" module for libraries like
Qt was considered at the plenary. This would allow the LSB to provide
standards for Qt based applications but at the same time make it clear
to application writers what their obligations would be (eg either be
GPL'd or in the case of Qt have the possiblity of paying Trolltech).
