 Currently, getting graphical applications to work on MacOS X involves a
 bit of manual steps after "cabal install", particularly if the
 applications happen to be command line oriented at the same time (ie. a
 GUI that supports being called from the command line).

 The blog post below offers a solution which seems to work for wxHaskell
 (Setup.hs files also attached).  Perhaps it can be generalised somehow so
 that users can just tell Cabal they want an application bundle?

 Duncan requested Apple docs on application bundles.  I haven't read it
 yet, but maybe this will help?
