Sounds like you're unfamiliar with Apple's ban on interpreted


   "An Application may not itself install or launch other executable
   code by any means, including without limitation through the use of
   a plug-in architecture, calling other frameworks, other APIs or
   otherwise. No interpreted code may be downloaded or used in an
   Application except for code that is interpreted and run by Apple’s
   Documented APIs and built-in interpreter(s)."
