File an enhancement request in bugzilla! You got my vote.

But also I wanted to emphasize that the OS X app bundle scheme (and 
APIs not available from Rev) offers more flexibility and features than 
Revolution could possibly offer, at least in it's current incarnation.

App bundles are used not only to store the executable file in, but to 
package resources, libraries, sounds, media, help files, and so forth. 
And maintain localized variations for all of the above.

So: the OS X app bundle scheme is like your application delivery 
vehicle. So it's not just a hassle, it's also empowering. It could be 
worse- you could be forced to use ResEdit like in MacOS<10 days.

Also- I do recommend installing the Free Mac OS X Developer CD even if 
you aren't a C programmer because it installs a number of useful 
utilities like IconComposer, PackageMaker, PropertyListEditor and about 
20 others.

HTH more :-)
