I must add:
- - grass already forces users to install additional programs (eg gdal,
proj, and many others), but this historically helped grass growing,
enlarging the developers base
- - it is very easy adding grass commands to qgis (we have done it, and
will submit them for the new qgis version)
- - your cautions about Qt are reasonable, and I'm very much concerned
about this (this is the reason I prefer Debian over suse and redhat, for
instance); however, many large projects are based on it, and it seems
likely that in case Trolltech will change the licence, the community may
be able to take over.
All the best.
