You're not Trolltech, I get that, but this does beg the question:

If you must purchase a commercial license to BOTH Qt AND whatever bindings 
you're using to do a commercial Qt app in anything but C++, then how can they 
claim that the bindings are competing with them?  I've never heard of any 
bindings claiming to be a replacement for Qt, nor could they be.  You 
purchase just Qt or both, meaning no matter what they get their cut.
