Google yielded mention of py2app
py2app documentation says:

I don't think py2app is exactly what we want since our main
application is not in Python. It, however, refers to "Dependency
resolution by modulegraph".
I see that modulegraph is already installed on my Mac:

This *seems* like it might be related. I could be completely wrong.
If this isn't the right thing, surely we could create a little app
that *only* installs the missing dependencies. Perl, Python, bash or
even Applescript could install this stuff, no?
Metadata is a cool new feature for Myth. I'd like to find some way
for OS X users to join the fun.
