I see your point, which is good; the drawback is that setting

resource directories for tools having no resources

Ok, I see the point. Is it necessary then to couple the actual creation of a resource bundle directory to the behaviour of the result of mainBundle for a tool so tightly? Wouldn't it be better to let mainBundle point to the (probably non-existent) bundle anyways? I don't see why this shouldn't be done anyways. It's also more compatible (in this case exactly the same) with what Apple does in its Foundation.

BTW: I'm currently porting Sen:te's OCUnit to GNUstep. OCUnit needs to gather the bundles for all testclasses in the runtime. Even if there are no resources involved at all, I'd have to create a resource bundle for the tools because otherwise +[NSBundle bundleForClass:] wouldn't work. That directly leads to clutter (albeit not that much, given I'm not creating 1000 testing tools), but it's strictly unnecessary.
