It puts lots of things under a really strange situation: squeak itself
is allowed since VM is compiled from C code but smalltalk applications
are not allowed because they were/are developed in a non authorized

What amazes me is that license does not say anything about applications
themselves but about the languages they were/are developed. Some say
Apple aimed at Flash/Adobe and the rest is collateral damage. If so it
was an extremely dumb thing to do.

But I have other concerns about AppleStore & Apple policies that just
don't fit this board.

Best regards,
