There are no Apple Fonts anymore. We switched to the free Accu and  
Bitstream Vera Fonts a while ago.

If you're doing it for profit, you should not just seek advice on a  
mailing list - IANAL ;-)

That is what other companies have been doing. E.g., impara with  
"Plopp" (http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/3898353664). That was  
bundled with a VM, so users would not even notice it is build with  
Squeak unless waiting through the end-credits. Looks like any normal  
app, comes with its own EULA - no license worries.
