I think putting a 'validated' pd in the app store is a great idea, for both
pd-vanilla and pd-extended. Just alot of work.
I believe, but am not certain, that dlopen will continue to work as long as
you play the 'app sandbox' game: if a user wants to load binaries from a
different location in a sandboxed app, they need to give permission. Here
are the juicy details:
of importance in there is 'Securty-Scoped Bookmarks'.
Note this isn't just Mac, you have to jump through the same hoops for
WinRT, which hasn't really caught on yet, but its a sign that the trend
nowadays is for a rediculously high level of securty, by default.
