Sorry about the many replies to this thread but...

I have looked into this a little.  One problem that has cropped up  
with the other applications such as the jobqueue is that they expect  
things to be in their path.  (ie jobqueue needs commflag and  
transcode to be in the path)  On solution I have used is replacing  
the executable in the bundle with a shell script that sets the path  
to include the .app/Contents/MacOS directory, then start the  
executable.  I also copy the transcode and commflag executables into  
the .app/Contents/MacOS directory.
