And we could even write Application Bundles like MacOS X and include
dependent libraries inside one dir. For the user, the whole directory
would be an executable. All we need is a .directory in there.
Although we have klik packages as well (which are loop-mounted images).
Now, I'm not sure how additions to the spec work. I suggest you start by
modifying the text to encompass what you want, then send the list the
patch. It would probably help if you had at least one implementation

I remember. Personally, I would like to see that kind of addition out of
the spec. Advanced conditionals should be done with scripting or plugins.
