Show .app extension? How?!

I like seeing file extensions, and I want my Cocoa apps to have the proper .app extension.

I poked around in plists, but I found nothing. Before I grep everyfile in my system for ".app", anybody know a clear path to my goal?

Cool, it seems to work. I have a couple questions, though.

Could you explain what this does? What's that lil' bit o' perl changing? I'd like to make a little prefs pane wrapper to provide this function.

Wow, having to patch the Finder is a seriously ugly solution. I mean, no offence to you, it's cool that you found it, but it's really lame that Apple didn't provide a less ugly way of showing the 'app'...

Bad Apple Bad!
