Get Me The Cydia Desk: Saurik Promises Mac Apps Store

This image described by Cydia, Saurik, Cydiastore
Jay Freeman is about to do for desktop Macs what he's done for iDevices.  Freeman, a/k/a Cydia creator Saurik, announced yesterday at 360|MacDev that a jailbreak store for Mac OS X, cycript, and Cydia Substrate is mere weeks away.

Like Cydia, Saurik's vision for the Mac store is a repository, not for apps per se, but extensions of what the OS can't currently do.  One such example: Apple's actual Mac Store will not support in-app purchases, a la the iOS world.  That alone might make "Mac Cydia" enticing for desktop coders.  (If you're one such developer, drop a line to patrick at Cydia for more info…)
