True, there are three options, but this was the case under Nokia too, which was 
the time period that Steve was talking about. His description that "Qt isn't 
'free' (depending on what you are going to be doing with it)" doesn't apply to 
this either. Or the previous iteration under late-period TrollTech, for that matter.
