My first idea is that Intel (or the consortium behind Tizen) could just "buy" Qt. I think this idea has been put on the table in a way or another in other LWN comments or blogs.
I don't think it's like they have to pay billions, because Nokia has been fooling around after buying Qt without showing any direction of what they want to do with it, they might just sell it (Qt is opened to the community anyway, but I guess that's not what Samsung wants to hear). After this entire MeeGo cluster****, one more expense for the sake of continuity should very well make sense.
