how about:

give it the next state to gold and add a appdb flag, that states "may
only work if some <put in legaly correct term for a crack here>" flag to
the app and then provide the maintainers with a proper explanation of
the flag in the UI. if the flag is set, then do not allow the highest
state - even if is rated gold. then take of some weeks and weed through
the appdb and fix all occurences of the word crack.
