Looks like it is high time for a coherent, competent QT white paper of 
what living with "Open Source Version" really means for Indie Mobile.

That is also a pretty crappy sales pitch to force Indie devs to go
searching through legaleze of LGPL 3.14159265358 to see how it works out.

Or some 2014 forum post that is not concisely written.

Can it get approved in the IOS store?

Will it get removed from Google Play?

Does it mean that you must provide full source code or only object files?

Will it stay approved in the IOS store if someone bitches that you have 
not gotten them object files quickly enough?

How does someone re-link an IOS app and get it put back on their IOS
