I don't think Apple has pulled the app either...
But feel free to inform us if they did. (with proof.)

To all you _______ users, no drunk person will think to avoid crashing into you just because you have _________ on your back window. If they are drunk they will be making stupid decisions regardless of whether or not there's an app for that.

Stupid people are going to do stupid things regardless.

For all you Apple and Android Lovers... To each their own. Being mad at a group that likes something different than you is dumb. But more and more I see both sides saying, "Yours sucks because of X." I thought the, "I like mine better because of X." Was MUCH more informative. But hey name calling is so much easier to do.

So ... to recover, you put the disk in a new / different Mac, create an account with the same passphrase, and then log in?

You don't have to create an account with the same passphrase.
Like blueg3 said, you just take the sparse bundle (Disk image) and mount on another Mac. When you go to mount it, it will ask for the username and password that created it.

This product will certify your source code is compliant after it scans it...
