I have two apps on the App Store that had been implemented using Basic
Auth, and I'm naturally updating them to make use of OAuth. I've
submitted an update for one, but it's still waiting for review; the
other I hope to submit in the next few days.

Here's the question: If those updates don't get approved before the
OAuth deadline, what happens? Do the Basic Auth versions completely
stop working for the users that currently have them installed? Will
calls authenticated with Basic Auth throw a certain error code? Will
there be some sort of "grace period?"

Especially with the iPhone 4 launch later this month, I'm worried that
queue times for approval may be an issue, and I haven't seen any solid
word on what happens when Basic Auth becomes unsupported.
