I think thats quite a difficult point as I read GPL. There is a certain interaction
between your code and the library at link time (it tries to resolve symbols and stuff from the library and there could be inline code and data structures in the header). The GPL only says that you are bound to its clauses if you distribute- so whatever you do in receiving and operating the software you have no obligations. How about this one; // This file is distributed under GPL v3 only
#include "qstring.h"
int main(void){
QString foo;

Are you telling me that this post/me is now infringing trolltech - I don't even have a copy of QT let alone agreed to be subject to its license :)
