cabal-macosx: Cabal hooks for Mac OSX

This package provides a Cabal post-build hook for building application
bundles for GUIs on Mac OSX.  It also includes a standalone command
line utility (macosx-app) for wrapping one-off GUIs that do not use Cabal.

Under Mac OSX, graphical applications require certain infrastructure
in order to run properly: you can't just build an executable and run
it (as on Linux, say), but must instead wrap it up in an application
bundle, which is a directory having certain structure and marked as an
app using a particular tool.  This package provides Cabal post-build
hook infrastructure for creating such bundles automatically,
optionally including icons, other resources, and even local copies of
shared libraries (for building apps which may be distributed

The command line version only provides basic functionality at the
moment.  It takes a single argument, the path to an executable,
and produces an application bundle in the current working directory.
