Except in Windoze the user SEES the folder right there... right?
On the mac, you at least have to know how to open up a package and 
most users don't or don't care.

  That's a big difference to me and I would think to the users, and 
not the same thing. And when you double click a Win folder, you see 
the contents, not start the app. Wouldn't an uninformed user have the 
possibility to move the startup exe separately from the folder?

sqb  (thankfully not of the Windows world)
