But I do have a new question which is relevant to this question. I saw
the announcement of lua-llvm which suggests you can statically compile
down Lua code to native code. Assuming you were just using Lua without
any intent to download and interpret new code, would lua-llvm allow
you to create a completely native, self-contained executable static
binary that would satisfy Apple's conditions?
It would not be necessary, Eric, as mentioned previously. You can use Lua in your application. You just can't download arbitrary scripts from the installed app. I can appreciate where they are coming from there; I just think that 'power users' and 'developers' ought to be able to take that responsibility upon themselves, such as one apparently can on the Android platform.
