Saving to a Stack

>Standalones on OS X ARE folders in disguise

Greg, Klaus, et al:

For this reason, as well as the Distribution Builder's apparent 
inability to place non-stack files & folders in distribution folders, 
I find it easier to:

* manually build a distribution folder containing all files & stacks 
except the standalone

* designate NO files (except Rev Libraries) other than the standalone 
source stack and No folders to the Distribution Builder

* drag the completed standalone to my distribution folder once its built.

Another approach to this particular OS X "feature" is to have the 
standalone search multiple paths for the stacks & other files it 
needs.  Eg: On Mac OS X platforms, my file search handler looks in 
both the folder containing the "application bundle" and the folder in 
the app bundle that contains the actual standalone.
