There's a couple pieces you may or may not be interested. The first is
that the Wing OS X app bundle consists of a small launcher application
which runs the run-wing.sh shell script in the Contents/MacOS directory.
We have not posted the code, but would be willing to do so if there's
interest -- it's probably not the best way to do things, but it works.
There should be a number of other X11 application launchers for OS X.
The second piece is that run-wing.sh and later wing.py set up the
environment so that the versions of gtk & pygtk that come with Wing are
used. This code is pretty much cross-platform (it's used on both Linux
and OS X) and depends, in part, on patches to the gtk source so gtk can
run in a directory that's different than it is built in.
