We are, and even more complex since we have to make a bundle (basically a dylib) not a mach-o executable.

There will basically be no options for this one aside from "proxy to this dll" in the way I'm invisioning it, but we can likely stuff that in the Info.plist and use a generic launcher, since thats basically all it does, unless I'm missing something.

The difference we have is we have no way to do this without making a native lib, unlike monomac where we can use the scripted launcher.
