Does it discourage admins and users from installing different versions
of an app, with different libraries? And if not: How can I (as admin)
make sure that a user actually gets the version I've installed if he
starts "foo.app"? What about sharing ressources (libs, icons,
dictionaries, plugins), if every app comes in such a wrapper?
I may have a totally wrong understanding of this concept, so I should
wait for something to read on. Sorry for any ramblings...
