If you read my post again, you'll notice I wrote "maybe" about
Konqueror. That also makes it sufficiently clear, I believe, that I
didn't read the copyright file for that specific package.
My comment was based on recent very personal and very painful
experience with the Q license and another unrelated piece of software,
and my knowledge (still correct, AFAIK) that Qt itself is covered by it.
