    Can you explain? Just extracting different versions of the binaries
    produced by the above system will work just fine. IIRC you only need to
    adjust the paths in Frescobaldi, right?

I suppose that I can have different name binaries in my bin folder, with a 
different name for each version.  As far as I know the binaries are generally 
installed to some folder other than Applications (I don't remember where it 
ended up when I tested it.

With the app bundle, I can rename the app bundle, and all of the necessary bin 
files are in each .app bundle.  I don't have to worry about what is the 
appropriate system path.  It's possible that it's no more difficult with your 
binaries, rather than the .app bundles.  It's just not my standard process.  
GUB produces .app bundles, so that's what I'm used to using.

The other thing that I thought tha .app bundles provided is built-in proper 
versions of all the necessary utilities, so I don't need to worry about clashes 
with improper versions of utilities.  I haven't actually run into any problems 
with clashes, but I also haven't tried multiple lilypond binaries with 
different names on my system -- I've just used different app bundles.

I'm an old dog, but not so old that I can't learn new tricks.  Maybe I just 
need to learn new tricks and your method is perfectly sufficient.  If so, 
please let me know.

Thanks,

Carl
