Carbon port: setting the creator code (patch)

I'm posting some code that introduces a function "mac-set-creator" in the Mac (Carbon) port. The function sets the creator code (metadata information) of a file to 'EMAx'. That enables LaunchServices to start up Emacs whenever the file is double-clicked.

In the Aquamacs distribution, I use it as follows:

(defun mac-set-creator-code-for-file ()
  (if (and aquamacs-set-creator-codes-after-writing-files
       (fboundp 'mac-set-creator)
      (mac-set-creator buffer-file-name)

(add-hook 'after-save-hook 'mac-set-creator-code-for-file)

This contains some free code from Apple.
