I forgot about Rosetta; for now, that answers my question.

While I'm at it, I thought I'd point at something I stumbled on just now.


Platypus isn't really necessary, given that we can build executables 
directly from DrScheme. But Tapir is a neat little app. It creates 
menubar apps from scripts for OSX. W.R.T. PLT Scheme, Tapir can turn 
applications compiled with "mzc --exe foo foo.scm && mzc --exe-dir 
foodir foo" into menubar apps with almost zero effort.

I thought that was kinda cute.
