One of the sited articles looks to be discussing "the iTunes App Store"
which (AFAIK) is what we now call the iOS App Store (which has
completely different licensing than the Mac App Store).

The other article is from 2011. I believe I read the license in detail
in the 2013-ish time frame, so it may have changed since the Adium folks
looked into it. I wouldn't trust me but I wouldn't immediately pooh-pooh
the idea either. Let's at least have someone knowledgeable look into the
current licensing before we decide it's a no-go.

It's too bad they don't have a source code repo for the license
somewhere so we can look at the diffs.
