Ah, that's very cool! I actually meant support for installing the
program without even dorodango installed - using only what comes with
it. But I imagine you could create some sort of bundle with the 'doro
install' code plus the app bundle.

Eventually you'd want cross-platform bundling support too, but that
gets more difficult. I imagine that software like LilyPond or GnuCash
would be interested in a convenient way to use new Guile modules.

I'm glad you've been thinking it through, then.
