Reading a standalone's info.plist file

Thanks Jacque. I just want to get the version info I put into the
standalone settings when it was built. I guess I prefer to get it from the
plist file because I know if I put it into a custom property, I will forget
to do it at some point and then the version displayed in the Get Info
window will be out of step with what's in my app's ABout dialog. Just
don;t like storing the same information in two different places.
I'm also planning to try coding a savingStandalone handler to get the
version from the standalone settings and put it into a custom property.
