   I am forced into a choice of including an example program or making
   my source code available, yes.

This implies that you are forced to include the example, which you are
not.  By including it, you have agreed to abide by the license that
applies to the work.

   If that is, indeed, the choice, I will happily choose to not
   include the qt example. It provides little value for the cost.

The cost that users have to give up by using your library is much
greater, they are not allowed to run, study, improve and/or distribute
your work.  Instead, you could do the morally and ethically correct
thing, and licensing your software under a free software license,
would you like to do that?
