So the interesting question is, how can they tell, given that they do
not review source code?

People have suggested that they will look out for the binary
signatures of various frameworks. If they make the filters too
stringent they will be getting lots of false positives on badly
written 'native' applications anyway.  It depends how bloody-minded
they want to be, i.e. whether it comes out of a genuine desire to
improve their platform, or it's whether it's another shot in the war
against competitors - that isn't an either/or of course.

Can actually see why they want to keep Flash of their little devices,
it's enough of a pig on big computers already.  But little Lua?
