I thought of that, but there isn't a good way to 1) know what all the 
extensions might be, and 2) find the extension. I have folders on my 
drive that have dots in their names, and they aren't bundles.

I just spent some time looking at shell commands and I can't find one of 
those either. The "ls" command has lots of options but none that will 
separate out executable app folders from regular files.
