No, Andy, that's not true. I took great care to never include anything
licensed as GPL from anywhere outside Reality Jockey. rj in fact is dual
licensed: The BSD parts like adapted help files all carry a BSD notice,
*only* the parts written by RJ contractors include the GPL notice.

For the rj library, the license issue is not such an issue, as it is
possible to use the library and also the full scenes outside of the
Apple jail, for example on Peter Brinkmann's ScenePlayer for Android.
(I'm working with Peter polishing this.) The rj abstractions are not
shipped via the AppStore, or at least not only there, you can also
install them through the website without the DRM issue.
