  Isn't it GPLv3 rather than GPLv3.0?

  Hm. If LICENSE_APPROVED is not set, it means that the compilation will 
stop to ask the user which license s/he wants. That doesn't necessarily 
imply the commercial license. So I prefer an OR construct here as well.
And anyway, even if you hold a commercial license you're still free to 
distribute it under one of the other licenses.

  By the way, I'd also call it "Digia Qt Commercial license" to make it 
more explicit. But that's just an opinion.
