That's good.

So it seems it has been several days and I have one yes and no  
complaints. Anybody willing to commit this to svn? Is there anything  
else I need to do?

One small note: the file should probably be named qtfaststart.py (no  
minus sign) so that it can be used as a Python module in other  
projects. It seems you can't import files with a minus sign in the name.
