Well, I can't see why Trolltech (the owners of Qt) would object.

Presumably the main reason that you would want a Qt skin for
Windows application running under Wine is that you run several
other Unix applications using Qt...

So I can't see why they wouldn't give us special permission
if we for some reason would need it...

The alternative a GTK skinned only Wine would not benefit them
at all, quite the opposite.
