Thanks for sharing, Florian.

@Phil, what are your thoughts on this? Will it have any effect on the
growth and development of PyQt? From a 10.000 feet view, you alone could
potentially squash this effort in a matter of weeks by widening the license
scheme and potentially gain 100% market share, and possibly gain added
traction via open source contributions from the very same volunteers
currently rounding up for PySide.

Came across this interesting read recently, about the direction in which
software is heading how it can be difficult to "compete with free", which
made me think of this situation.

PyQt is a great product of great quality. I personally wouldn't want to see
this responsibility fall into the hands of Autodesk.
