Wrapper, package or bundle... Whatever it is, when it first appeared on 
the list I though it was a good idea to implement a compact way to keep 
TeX files away all together. It will be more practical and MacOSXish.

I will support happily any initiative in this direction.

As an aside: I will like to know if there is someone (like me) who 
still works with DVI files and does not like MacDviX?
(i.e. somebody would like to use a fast Cocoa DVI previewer?)
