-- is there a python way to get the creator when I only have the 
application *name* (no path, nothing)
i.e. I have "Finder" and I need "MACS". I don't want to stop and peek 

Context: I'm building a very patchy parser for the Lasso Capture AE tool, 
a simple control panel that makes a transcript of all appleevents that 
race by anywhere in the system. Copy and paste the transcript to the 
parser, and it produces executable python code that will re-create the 
captured event. Infinitely easier than building it by hand!
