(.noindex to disable spotlight indexing of this dir as well)
I'm pretty confident this won't work - the actual MacPyMOL binary
object is only about a third of the contents of the app bundle.

Nope, Warren made the 0.99 builds freely available without purchasing
a license - this is the only version of MacPyMOL that we are legally
allowed to distribute (and this has been true for many years now). As
far as I know the license terms have not changed significantly; at any
rate, it is still easy to obtain and compile the current open-source
PyMOL. But we don't distribute that because it requires X11, and the
native MacPyMOL has always been proprietary.

Actually, it's only 33MB out of about 1.8GB - for what it's worth,
these are the largest sub-directories in 1.7.3 (with sizes in MB):
They're not going to get much smaller, unfortunately. :(
