     Most of the documentation for "" assumes you're packaging a
library module. (Ref: "")
How do you properly package an application?  What happens
on " install"?  Where does the application get installed?  Where does
the main program go?

   If I package and build my app, it packages properly, and
unpacks and builds into


which is appropriate for a library, but not an application.
Here's the setup file.
