There has been a discussion on this among the MacTeX working group of 
TUG, and a special initiative (called TeX Wrapper) launched by Gerben. 
This initiative was finally terminated early this year, due to lack of 
developers' interest.

If you think TeX wrappers (the technical name for folder packages, like 
.pkg packages, appearing as single files in OS X) are interesting, it's 
time to advocate them, so that developers' interest could be revived.
