That's why you don't charge anywhere near $350/month/developer.  That's the
whole problem I am trying to solve.  Most indie, small and moderate
businesses simply can't afford that.

But if you charge them something much, much less for a commercial license
and then Qt recoups its costs from a small slice of royalties, everyone is

The in-house license would be more expensive per month but would mostly be
used by larger corporations.

That makes it even worse. The price of a commercial licence is
$350/month/developer. At a 5% cut, that means $6800 net revenue per month to
break even with current prices, assuming you're working alone. Multiply that
by the number of developers.
