Why? Isn't it our fault if we the users break it by putting another
bundle in a higher-priority place? Maybe a "check this before emailing
me for help" note in the README is needed, also saying that they
should mention having done the checks in their email.

You're going to love this: After logging out and returning a day
later, GWorkspace now starts Operation and Recycler happily. I'll
see whether I can figure out what change let them start working.

They still get appicons, which seems like clutter.

Well, it seems far stabler. [...]

One missing(?) feature from 0.6.3: I didn't find how to delete
without moving to the recycle bin. Sometimes I want to do that,
because the recycle bin is on a different partition and it's
a slow device for copying. I resorted to pasting to Terminal.
