I believe that this is possible - I'll have to check, but I can vaguely
remember that I already saw applications in the wild that did exactly
this. Actually, it might be as easy as just putting a normal appbundle
into the Ressources folder.

Sounds like the most elegant option - do you think this will happen 
before 1.8, or should we pursue the appbundle-inside-appbundle idea
for 1.8
