In the code for build-application is the following comment:

;;; TODO: 
;;;  1. make a way to specify a user-defined app delegate in build-application

so this does not seem like a promising approach for someone like me who doesn't really understand what's going on under the hood of the cocoa application startup process.

There is an existence proof that what I want to do is possible (AgentSheets).  Surely Alex is not the only person on the planet -- or even on this list -- who has figured out how to build a standalone Mac application on CCL?
