I see RunRev have jumped on the bug report quickly, which is great, but Apple deprecated the UDID a very long time ago and recently gave fair advanced warning that they'd be rejecting any apps still using it from May 1st.

Since I was able to find:
engine/src/mbliphoneextra.mm:t_identifier = [[UIDevice currentDevice] uniqueIdentifier];
in less than 10s by using grep on the source, perhaps we can have some community supported process as a safety net to make sure these things get caught before apps are rejected from the store?

FYI - in the same announcement Apple have also mandated that all apps must support retina displays and the 4" iPhone 5 resolution from May 1st, so anyone looking to submit an iPhone app soon may want to check that too.
