And yet normal Linux distributions like Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu or
openSUSE manage to check their tens of thousands of packages just fine...
BTW, I would be more concerned of closed source binary-only packages
being submitted to the store, than about scripts you can actually read.
The blob can on the other hand do anything without QA having any
reasonable means to check for that.
