That's not what I mean - I know about using GRASS_WISH to set the  
particular wish binary to use, that's how I force GRASS to use my X11  
Tcl/Tk instead of Apple's default.  It's just that when I use the Tk  
Aqua wish, it's a separate Mac OS X application, not run inside of  
X11, and the system just knows it as 'wish' (in the menubar, the  
Dock, and CLI ps command).

I know in Java applications, there is a way to rename the application  
so it doesn't run as 'Java'.  Is there something similar for wish?
