I'm not supposed to talk about the app approval process.  Sorry!

My contribution in this project is simply to demonstrate the limits of what is acceptable to Apple in terms of a programming language interpreter on iOS.  I have tried to put as many features as possible.  I even implemented functionality for easily sharing Scheme scripts that unfortunately had to be disabled (even though you can cut-and-paste scripts from email, wep pages, etc... go figure!).
