And don't think of a 10-developer company. Think of a company with 20000 
developers, with offices all over the world. If *any* of them buy a commercial 
licence, does it mean everyone else must stop using the open source Qt? And Qt 

How about contributing to Qt open source? Do they have to stop too?
