Open application when file double clicked

Pretty interesting.  I don;t think I launched the app by double clicking it
when I had my debug code in there for "oapp", was always launching it by
double clicking a file associated with it.

I have to step out for a while but will try this scenario here when I get
back.

Even if I do see the oapp event, I wonder tif the data associated with it
includes the path to whatever file was double clicked.
