A future version of Qobject will not require Qt, because Trolltech plan to
split Qt.

However, the Qt license is not likely to be acceptable to freedesktop
people, because it can not be used by LGPL libraries, such as gstreamer. I
can only guess that Trolltech plan to use the same license for the non-GUI
part of Qt.
