Let me emphasise once again what Quim, Lars and Lorn have said. And let me add 
that I do not work for Nokia:


They don't know what's happening yet. Let them figure that out first. Let them 
see what will happen to the team and the assets. Let others try to *help* them 
(as I am trying to).

This discussion is pointless. Your questions are pointless at this point in 
time. There's really NO POINT in discussing the worst case scenario until 
other options have been exhausted.

And specifically to you, d3fault:

Last time you were out of line, I took the conversation to private emails and 
I tried to reason with you. You did not get it. So this time it goes in 

You're WAY out of line. You've burned yourself in the development mailing list 
and are more than half way there in the general interest mailing list. You're 
not helping, neither Qt nor your own cause.

Please hold your horses and direct your enthousiasm to more concrete and 
constructive activities. If you don't, I'll be forced to talk to the list
