Well, it means people can start 'Gorm' by simply typing 'Gorm' at the 
command-line. :-)

Also, the application starts faster that way, without the overhead of 'openapp'.
You can still use 'openapp' if you want, but there is no particular
reason to (and typing 'Gorm' will start the application faster!).

If it's really important for you, we could add an option to configure in 
to disable these symlinks.  But I'm not sure what we gain.  The symlinks take 
up very
little space on disk. ;-)
It's more a philosphical matter, more than "space gain". We waste space elswehere!
It means those symlinks need to be maintained and they get obsolete...

I like the idea that an application can be moved, around, installed by untarring it, deleting by trashing it. Like you do in OpenStep or Cocoa.
