What I meant by "behind the scenes" was that they should be installed
by the installer, not drag+drop installed by the user. If you put
these applications in the user's face they *will* click on them, and be
disappointed/confused when they don't do anything (because appscript
isn't installed *and* because they have no UI).
Their installation destination depends on what kind of interaction the
user will have with them, if any. If appscript will start them on its
own, then the same location as the Python package makes some sense, but
I would put them in a directory that is clearly not a subpackage (i.e.
a directory with-a-hyphen-in-it).
