And then you'd also need to re-download the app if you need it on a

Unless the Souq can beat Apple in its own game, by offering
Multiversal Binaries that work across hardware platforms, OSes and
their versions, GUI frameworks, Python versions and universes.
Settling for Downright Obese Binaries if supporting different
universes is considered overkill would be OK too.
