I was not under the impression that he was suggesting that Twisted's
license be changed; instead I believe he was merely trying to point out
that since Twisted code is MIT-licensed as a matter of policy, having
code that possible constitutes a derivative work of Qt may be legally
problematic. Please note that I'm not trying to suggest an informed
opinion on whether or not this is true; IANAL etc. Also see glyph's post
in this thread for a reasonable course of action to clear this potential
issue up.
