Interesting ... I think it's quite a nice idea.

I modified openapp on GNUstep so that when it looks for applications
inside, say, $GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT/Applications, it also checks for the
application inside subdirectories (if there are any).

As a related issue, I also extended openapp to be able to manage the case
'openapp Gorm' (as opposed to 'openapp Gorm.app').  openapp will then
automatically search for Gorm.app or Gorm.debug or Gorm.profile.
