OK.. So this is 1 person who understands where I am coming from.
Linux and Free Software gain nothing by putting freeQT under the LGPL
But we Loose a lot of our good name by doing so.  Better to GPL this

always been proprietary, LGPLing LessTiff may hurt them ... IF it were
as good, but who cares ?
