What negative response on what list are you talking about?

As I showed in my other mail, Emil didn't ask the Qt community anything.

I'm sure he asked someone something (maybe Joe Bloggs at the water cooler?),
but either he wrote nothing to the Qt devel list, or it somehow does not
show up in a GMane search.

So, please don't repeat unsupported claims of a negative response.
