I'd consider it to be "some risk to TrollTech" disappearing. And TT 
could always do a fundraiser like Blender3D did if they really, really 
needed money. But I doubt they will: SuSE, for example, are big fans of 
KDE and not showing any signs of incipient evapouration.

The smoke might assist an act of social Darwinism, though. (-:
