I think that is a somewhat unfair characterization.  That the end result
is quite satisfactory for KDE/Qt users may be partly attributed to the
FSF not moving an inch, but "the parties reached" is really suggesting a
kind of bilateral process that was not involved here.

The credit for the current state certainly belongs to Trolltech.  Any
credit to RMS is not for changing but rather for declaring his position.
