Sad to see you guys in the same basic position I've been sitting in for a while - with a parent company that doesn't really want to sell my Qt-based products for political reasons, not technical reasons. (The Qt-based product is far superior technically to the product they want to replace it with.) So I know the anxiety it's causing.

Any how, hope it clears up for you all soon.
