Are you sure ? even with the alleged change of Sep 2010 ? (it is hard
to tell, since Apple does not publish its rules, and stamp a under-NDA
to their rejection letter)

and what is the substantial difference between interpreting a Basic
script and a Calc formula ? I suposed that calc formula are allowed,
otherwise the whole exercise seems pointless. if so, then what would
prevent the re-implementation of basic in calc formula ? and how is
that different than supporting basic directly ?
