Hence my comment about 'when being run from an App Store installed 
environment'. It is easy to check if an App is running when installed 
from an AppStore...

Indeed, you have to build such things using a 'distribution profile' 
specific to the store - so any action would be at standalone-build time, 
rather than anywhere else.

To be fair, I don't think it is likely to happen... However, unlikely 
does not mean impossible!

Warmest Regards,


P.S. I'd also rather not have to expend the resources doing it - there 
are far better things we could be doing than figuring out ways to turn 
dynamic features into static ones, or reworking stuff so the dynamic 
features could be turned off. I much prefer the 'with great power comes 
great responsibility' approach - i.e. trust!
