[PD] Pd-style executable

I had a thought recently: if we treat Pd like Java, ie like a  
framework to be installed, then all we need to do is make a nice  
cross-platform app packaging format.  To make this work, we'd need to  
have file associations working.  They already work beautifully on Mac  
OS X, and basically work on Windows (but every double-click opens a  
new instance of Pd).

If there was a format were you could bundle all needed files into a  
double-clickable file format, then it would work much like an app as  
long as you have Pd installed.

Think this could work?  I am thinking something like .jar format.
