My guess would be that the MZStore.woa entity is a web objects app
running in Safari/FF/other that works pretty much like a php page,
uses AppleScript/System Events to activate iTunes on the originating
computer, then does the correct commands to do the downloading and
You could do the same thing with a Rev app, but I don't know how to do
the remote connectivity part. The Apple developer site probably has a
couple sample scripts for this.
