I would like to point out that the anti-gc policy is part of the documentation. There is nothing in the developer agreement about using garbage collection. I would imagine that play-testing is part of the application approval process (as well as scanning for banned symbols, and such). As long as the app seemed to correspond to their UI guidelines, it would probably be approved.  For instance, a friend of mine actually used a scheme interpeter in his app and it was approved on the first try.

 how would they know its a gc pause?  it would just look like a bunch of

impression of "slowness".

let's be honest with ourselves.  when gc happens, its not like a little flag
comes up going 'GC in progress!  please wait!'... its very rare that it 'feels'
any different from a normal procedure call.  slightly longer, perhaps, but
almost indistinguishable in the general case.  the reason for their (apparent?
potential?) disapproval of gc isnt because of the user experience.
