OK, that worked. Stuffit mostly works on autopilot. But it's easy 
enough to get into the app's bundle without Terminal: ctrl-click on 
what users generally think of as the application icon (well, it *is* 
the application's icon) brings up a contextual menu that includes Show 
Package Contents, which takes you straight down into that hierarchy.

The relevant line in the About box, by the way, says ".DS_Store, 04" -- 
is that because I moved the patches foldert by hand from the Finder as 
I just described? Is it a problem?
