This is great news. What happens if I want to make a small adjustment to 
the code, but I'm using Qt free edition? Suppose I commit a fix to 
vtkRenderWindow and this requires a change to stuff like the QtWidget, 
can I make changes?

What happens if I make a big adjustment to the code : like adding a 
QvtkTransferfunctionEditor class? (I'm tempted to go back to using 
wxWidgets, because the licensing is so much easier)
