[Openmcl-devel] Mac App store: will CCL apps fly?

Given how important CCL is to us (and will be to Apple once we can 
deliver our apps via their store), might Apple be able to pass 
judgement on CCL's purity/compliance now, hence leave us with our own 
walled garden inside CCL. Ie. within CCL we'd be safe knowing that we 
couldn't break any rules re. illegal instructions, if we only used 
CCL (meaning pure lisp as opposed to CCL environment or API). Hence 
one test of all of CCL rather than every app having to be tested in 
this regard and being subject to the whims of Apple testers. I can't 
see how it could be done, but a "Verified as pure CCL" sticker might 
actually help progress pass the guard hounds at the Apple door. So 
could Clozure ask apple to check CCL for quarantine clearance?
