Please Review - Revised OS X Application Bundle patch

If any of the OS X hackers have time, could you guys take a look at
the following patch? I'd like to get it in to move on to more
interesting stuff like the icon generation cleanup in winemenubuilder
using windowscodecs.dll, OS X association support and perhaps even
proper dock integration. I've been testing this with the PowerPoint
2003 viewer and it works for me. I'd be interested in hearing if
anyone has trouble with other applications. You need to have Wine
installed somewhere in your path or you will need to manually hardcode
the path to your wine executable in the script generator just like
with the menu builder on the linux side. I don't like the amount of
#ifdef'ing I had to do but didn't really see a better way.

I know before Alexandre will accept he most likely will want me to
- Cleanup comments a bit.
- Maybe shorten some of the variable and function names

So I am looking for any other feedback you have.
