[Baypiggies] Idle on iPhone?

The SDK terms of service forbid shipping emulators or interpreters,  
presumably on the grounds that they want to make sure what's evaluated  
by their approval process is what will actually be running.

I am informed that there are some iPhone apps that use languages other  
than ObjC, so writing your app in Python should be permitted (and  
feasible, using PyObjC). Shipping an app that uses Python is different  
from shipping a Python interpreter app, though.
