You only have to choose to install QT7 if you don't have Pro installed
on your current OS X install. I just upgraded two machines to Snow
Leopard last night. When running the 10.6 installer on the laptop with
QT 7 Pro installed QT 7 was automatically checked for install. The
machine without QT7 did not automatically check QT 7 for install.
On both machines QTVR files worked after the upgrade (though a couple
of VRs on Apple's site failed to load properly on both machines).
Since the optional QT 7 install is only 10 MB it leads me to believe
that the checkbox only affects the QT 7 application, not the
underlying frameworks. I think the QT 7 framework is installed
automatically in order to handle old media. I still have to do some
more tests to confirm this though.
