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!
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!
