Yes, a bundle is basically a directory which contains an xml file with
meta information about it's content. Applications should be put into
application bundles because they won't get any window event when they
aren't. (at least when using the carbon API). Unfortunately I currently
don't know a way to create it using the command line. Either I lack
searching skills or there isn't any documentation or tool ;). I tried
to create it by hand but failed because there are some binary files
which I could not create but which seem to be needed. My current
workaround is taking an existing bundle and copying my executable into
it after compiling using the stage rule.

This worked fine, thank you
