One thing you apparently need to be careful of is that Apple is now more 
careful in its screening of iPhone apps that are submitted for the App 
Store, they apparently got bitten by some apps harvesting phone numbers 
and such... I don't know personally, but I read it here:


Seems some of the calls they rejected apps for seems to be an equivalent 
of getenv(), which OSG uses, so it might be interesting to check the 
actual approval rules and see if we can disable things that would cause 
apps to be rejected with an iphone-specific define in CMake or something.
