There is a similar problem with KDevelop. The skeleton KDE and Qt applications
have GPL headers on them. However, the created template applications are NOT
under the GPL. The manual clarifies this a bit, but I can see a lot of
confusion over it.  I wonder how many newbies learning Qt programming on
KDevelop think that they *have* to use the GPL?
