  Applescript  (watch the word wrap so you get the path right):

tell application "System Events"
	get exists login item "MyCoolProgram"
	if result is false then
		make new login item at end of login items with 
properties {path:"/Applications/", hidden:true, 
kind:application, name:"MyCoolProgram"}
	end if
end tell
