The licence for which Qt is licenced under is this; you either pay Trolltech for a commercial licence OR you release your application under GPL.

Which would mean either GPL everything or anyone wanting to work on Mozilla would need to buy a commercial Qt license (and they're not cheap).

But then, it's not true. You have a third option: the QPL, which permits you to use Qt with any open-source license.

Then again, AFAIK, Qt wasn't open source at all at the time the Netscape source code was first released, so the whole point is moot.
