OK, I'll agree with your assessment that Qt is compatible with a wider
range of open-source licenses.

Now for my crucial question: where did you find that gplexception link?
It's certainly not mentioned at [0] or [1], and a cursory search can't
find any pages that link to the gplexception page.  It's as if you need
to know it's there to even find it...

At minimum, shouldn't they link to the gplexception page from their
licensing pages?
