Considering this, I tend to agree with Phil. But on the other hand if you are 
a corporation pick up the phone and hire him:-)

As for releasing GPL'd projects on Win32 this is already possible, using PyQt 
and the GPL port of Qt-X11 to windows. This is based on Qt 3, and my 
impresion is that it's already in a usable state. This has one major 
advantage as it works now, not like Qt 4 which is not even released. There 
was several post on how to get this working in the beginning of jan. , search 
the archives.
