[K12OSN] Qcad Pro.

Personally, I prefer not to install software that has not been tested on 
my platform.  The way I do that is to stick to software that is located 
in my YUM repositories, or at least has RPM's for Fedora.  I hate 
tweaking after an install, software that you PAY for should hold your 
hand, IMHO, and install and work within minutes after install.
