Well yes, I agree. I had assumed we were using some sort of implicit exception 
to allow for app store distribution, which is allowed under section 7 of the 
GPL v2 (IIRC). I was pointing out re the original topic (BREW) that app stores 
are not an open distribution system either, even if barrier to entry is much 
easier. I merely cited the FSF cases as examples of where app store 
distribution is not in compliance with GPL.
