For the argument's sake, let's say that the poll shows statistical
relevance. That is, there's a huge interest in having a complete set
of C++ bindings for QML (or for an equivalent technology).

The OP:
- doesn't like the fact that QML has not a comprehensive C++ API;
- does want instead that API;
- doesn't like the CLA and the fact that he would be giving to Nokia
more what Nokia gives him back under a free license;
- knows that such an API won't come from Nokia "soon";

The natural consequence is: OP: go ahead and create this technology.

Make a startup, hire 20+ world-top-class developers, work hard for 1-2
years, and release your product as a 3rd-party add on for Qt.

You won't have to sign any CLA, and you'll be free to release it under
any licensing model you want.

And any bank will be happy to back your company, since, as you say,
- it's ok for you / you're willing to run in the red for some time
- the huge number of people wanting your product will make it
completely repay for the initial investment.

Does it sound good?
