For some people, it might be a lot.  Why waste money on something,
that has an almost-identical free-for-everyone version? (which also is
easier to install, BTW)

So, you have four options:

a) use PySide and Qt at Project, pay $0 and be sane (albeit saner than
   person B);
b) use PyQt4 and Qt at Digia, pay £350/£420 + £??? and be sane;
c) use PySide and Qt at Digia, pay £??? and look like a hypocrite (albeit
   less than person D);
d) use PyQt4 and Qt at Project, pay £350/£420 and look like a hypocrite.

PS. For those living in the past without proper Unicode support: £ = GBP.
