It's on the TODO list...it'll be part of the "install menu items" work 
that is yet to be done (symlinks placed in the $PATH fall into that 
category, sort of, but they are Unix-specific...getting items into Gnome 
menus, the Windows Start menu, the Mac OS X dock, etc, are other 
manifestations of this).

The "binarypath" thing was only there because I was evaluating which 
pieces of the loki_setup schema to keep.

I don't think we have any sort of official ABI.   :)
