Gruber just post a more studied view of Apple's latest ruling (the infamous Section 331) which we have been discussing in this thread:

   http://daringfireball.net/2010/04/why_apple_changed_section_331

I anticipate this latest change to the "rules" will generate quite fierce debate among all concerned--which includes those of us who have bought into revMobile. 

Best,

Jerry Daniels

There is no interpreted layer in a built RevMobile app; Rev scripts go directly from RevTalk to binary. We have limitations on using "interpreted" commands in our scripts, and they won't be accepted -- i.e., we can't use do, value, or any parameters that aren't already evaluated before they're sent (see the revmobile docs about that. It's not as bad as it sounds.)
