Huh ? Really ?

This project is a Third Party ? Are we a separate legal entity ?

Last i checked this project is part of OpenSolaris. OpenSolaris is a 
"Third Party" now ?

First of all you are confusing the C++ runtime with the Standard C++ 
Library. These two things are not the same.

Who are the "*other* developers" who depend on a build of QT that 
depends on libCstd.so.1 ? There is no QT right now in Solaris, QT3 or 
QT4, therefore there cannot be any "other developer" who depends on 
any particular build configuration of QT.
