Interesting. Since so many others, including Rev tech support, couldn't
do this before, I wonder what accounts for the difference.
Interestingly, in the scenario of an installer the reason it won't work
is that the Mac engine loses its executable bit when copied from a
custom prop to a file, which isn't all that different from what Rev does
with its own installer.
How does Rev do this, and why did Mark Waddingham once suggest to me
that the only way to write out an executable from a custom prop on OS X
was to set its executable bit.
How does that get set in the Win Rev installer?
