Well I'm sure the added urgency will help them prioritise

Also be aware that if the problem gets solved, it will be solved only for KDE 4, KDE 3 relies on Qt 3 which is not supported by Trolltech anymore, so the chances for that to change its license are essentially nil.

Thats a curious claim. If anything its easier to grant an extra licence consent on a product you no longer support and market under other parallel
proprietary licences than one you do.

Doesn't everyone who has ever contributed code have to agree to a change unless it had the "gplv2 or newer" clause to begin with - unless they also turned over ownership of the copyright to someone else?
