No, I mean the thing where an "application" is basically a
directory containing binaries, libraries, configuration,
which then appears in the GUI as a single icon. I think
this is done in Mac too? And GNUStep...
It would be nice to have this at the command line level too.
Basically executing the "directory" would run the application.
But you could also cd into the directory and mess with stuff
(given the right permissions).
