      Package maker can make installers with MacVIM to /Applications and
      also optionally install mvim to say /usr/local/bin

      By default if someone moves MacVIM from /Applications the installer
      will follow the move and reinstall newer versions to where the user
      moved the Application bundle.

      Also the mvim component can be set as an optional installed item.

      This is precluding sparkle integration judgments, as I have not
      developed with sparkle.
