No one answered to my post on swt newsgroup, so i'm asking about it here.

If there are licencing problems (CPL/EPL conflict with GPL), then
how is possible to have the kde* files, which uses Qt/KDE objects
in the org.eclipse.platform.source.linux.gtk.x86_3.1.0 plugin,
src/org.eclipse.swt.gtk_3.1.0/ws/gtk/ archive (in
the Eclipse 3.1M4/GTK2 distribution) ?

Following objects from Qt or KDE are used here :
KApplication, KGlobal, QString, QValueListIterator, KSharedPtr,
KMimeListIterator, KMimeType, KService, QStringList, KRun,
KURL, QCString and i can continue (i finished this list when
i was at 49% of kde.cpp file).

Maybe i'm too naive, but if these classes can be used in the JNI interface,
then why cannot be there a full implementation ? What's the difference
from using one class from Qt or the whole toolkit ? Or these files are just
here and they are not used ? Or they doesn't force their licence to SWT ?

I think that from GPL's side it doesn't matter if one class or whole toolkit
is used.

Can someone explain it to me ? Maybe i' don't understand something :-)
