I vote for cydia :)
I'd really love a solution where I can suck my ROM plus all installed applications and data from my newton and import into Einstein (I know, this is some way off)
I wonder if relativity would be able to use iOS calendar and contact data and display it in the newton apps in the future :-)

I always understood the rule as a way to avoid circumventing the store by uploading an interpreter and then sneaking in user code later. Even though iOSEinstein could do that, I have a hard time imagining that someone would write a custom Newton ROM just to sneak code by... .
