Well, good luck.  The people you need to talk to, with respect to
Apple and GPLv3, are not reading this mailing list.  We've already
talked to some of them, and the situation as I understand it is what I
already outlined, with the obvious proviso that I do not work at
Apple.  A couple of people from Apple have now commented on this
thread; go ahead and mail them directly.
