Application Locator

This is a little one, inspired by a Growl discussion list thread. Enter the bundle identifier or name of an application, and Application Locator will reveal it in the Finder.

    I doubt I’ll actually have need for this but I think it’s a sweet idea.

    I could imagine that slightly different use scenarios (Services, command line tool – can one make an AppKit binary which also works as a command line tool?) may be useful as well.

    You can use AppKit from a command-line tool as long as you don’t do anything that requires a connection to the window server (e.g., lock focus on an NSImage on 10.5).

    I’m not sure what you mean by your latter paragraph, though. You mean a service in the Application Locator app to reveal in the Finder the application whose bundle ID or name is the selected text?
