They did not make us jump through any special hoops.  We did what the documentation says to do in terms of code signing, submitted, and got approved.

By "we" I mean Matt, of course.

Note that we don't know what will happen when Apple starts enforcing its sandboxing rules.  That's part of why we want CCL in the store: so that we ask concrete questions about sandbox in reference to our existing app.  But the potential sandboxing issues aren't related to the fact that CCL is written in Lisp; they're related to the fact that CCL is a development tool and so it wants to be able to do things like have read-write access to multiple files on disk, and know where its home directory is so it can load an init.lisp file.
