is there a built-in possibility for making apps portable that doesn't have a directly startable gui?
I'm thinking about shell-extension based applications like Tortoise SVN or MP3ext.
What I would expect is something like a traybar icon that turns the shell extension ON, if closed, it turns the shell extension OFF.
there are a few apps (if you think of them like that) in Common that can do pretty much anything, if you believe the Java salesman, that is
there is a mechanism to invoke random java so I think, theoretically, everything is in place.
problem is the shell extension, otherwise a fine idea until it is thought through.
Nothing stopping you from using otherwise portable apps that weird themselves out by offering shell extension tools (being an actual shell extension is a bit more)
