I just noticed something potentially annoying about the .pkg
installer for OS X. If one moves the MaxMSP 4.6 folder to a location
other than its default, the installer will not update the files in
the new location. I organize my applications folder with subfolders,
and noticed I had two 4.6 installs, due to updating to 4.6.2, which
threw a new folder in to /Applications.
Im not sure what the official word is from Apple on how this all
should work, as some Apple application installers work properly when
moved from the default, and others do not. Is this possible to
implement? Not a huge deal, but it caught me by surprise, and it
would be nice if it could do it.

I don’t want the installer to update it (especially if installing a
