OS X locked down the Application folder a while back. I haven't changed the
permissions so it still asks for authorization when I try to remove an app.
This will vary by user. But also, when you delete an app, you are the user
that may have permission, but when the app does it, I don't think you're
the user any more, the app is, and it may not have permissions to alter
I don't know if the applescript will work but it's worth a try.
