A lot of work that goes into open source projects is actually done by 
people working at companies and paid for their work, but it's often 
difficult to get those same companies to pledge formal support, to 
donate money, or sometimes even to admit that they are using the open 
source component.  And yes they are fickle... PySide certainly got hurt 
by that after being dumped by Nokia in a way that made it hard to 
salvage some of the docs and associated info.
