How feasible use python instead of objective-c
I plan develop on the iphone. I have no big problems unserstanding the syntax of objective-c, at least is not c++! - but always hate the c-derivate languages.
The experience tell me that anything that you can do in a c-derivate language can you do in a language with better syntax, using only a hand and being blind while a couple of terrorist attact on you.
I see at pyObjc and know exist a port to iphone. I wonder if is a good idea try with this instead of go directly to Obj-c.
I build bussines/db oriented apps, no math or graphic intensive.
My worry is the license about not use a scripting language, but maybe is only for downloading of code and not embeb it with not changes at runtime??
Also, I can expect problems in debugging or deployment? I alwasy love delphi because is the only tool with no deployment nigthmares... so I learn that for a consumer app the easy of deployment is a king. I not mind have a complicated setup procedure if is transparent to the end-user, but I live by the mantra of find dependencies and eliminate them when possible.
If is not a good idea, at least is not java!

Python-Cocoa helped me to undestand a lot about the Cocoa mechanisms. When I started to be serious about Cocoa, I switched to Objective-C 2. That is very powerful, I actually write less code with it than with Python.
Properties synthetization has a big impact on the amount of the code you have to write, and the synthax in general is cleaner (wrapped-method invocation tends to be a mess in python).

I think you are right that if you included the interpeter inside the binary and the Python code to be interpeted is also inside the binary and there was no way for an end user to load more code then maybe you will be OK with Apple. But then how big is your binary if it has to include Phython. Also remember this phone has a very low end CPU. I think phones always will because a slow processor will always use less battery power. Fromthe users's point of view they are going to want a native (not interpeted) app. It will be smaler and faster
