I'm not sure I understand fully your packaging mechanism, but would it be
possible to have script-fu and the launcher as faceless background apps?  I
know it's possible to disable the dock presence (for a given app) -- but I
am not sure if it's really needed a UI for the extra 2 processes in your new
scheme.  If I understand the intentions of the project (make GIMP a seamless
first-class citizen on OS X), in theory the user shouldn't need to worry
about those technical details: so I'm thinking, maybe any config-related UI
elements could be removed or moved somewhere else and have the 2 additional
processes as background daemons.
