expect Vim.app to reside directly in /Applications. I prefer to have
subfolders there for different stuff (mainly to separate added apps
from ones coming with OS X - when possible). What I do do, which the
regular use case also implies, is have gvim.app and Vim.app in the
same folder. Therefore I'd recommend that any launch scripts expect
only that. A crude example (also sourcing .profile) of how to achieve
that is at:
