But KDE isn't quite GPL friendly yet. You of all people should know that parts of KDE are still flat-out GPL incompatible. As a result, every binary distributor of KDE is either breaking Trolltech's GPL with Noatun's Artistic, breaking Konqueror's GPL with Trolltech's QPL, or relying upon the Qt dual license ambiguity.

They are relying on Qt's double licensing. There is little ambiguity about that. Qt has two (three even I believe) licenses and you must make sure when you write software that there is at least one license that gives you the proper rights to use (modify,distribute,bla bla) Qt and allows you to satisfy all conditions set in that license (as well as the conditions set in other licenses applicable to you, such as the LGPL in order to use kdelibs). Konqueror and noatun are seperate works so the license conditions that you choose to fullfill for one of those works has absolutely no relation to the other.

But they only ship one libqt-mt.so binary. The ambiguity is that at different times, that binary is being used under the terms of a different license.

What is ambiguous about that?
