The only hint as to that is in the Subject line, and I didn't see the
".app" in there until after I had already hit Send. The answer I gave is
correct for the question he actually asked, though probably not for the

TTBOMK, although it may have a bit more official sanction than some
(being how it's hosted on the official site), MPlayerOSX is itself
little more than another of those front-end projects...
