I like #3! I'd also wager to have the startup script check the 
architecture that it is being run on and provide suitable feedback if 
the architecture does not match the PBI build architecture. Right now, 
the script closes and the application never launches.

Oh and ultimately providing a link the appropriate PBI would be 
incredibly easy for new users of PC-BSD and PBIs. Arguably if you go 
that route, a UI to simply d/l the xml list and process PBI availability 
using the UI could be done (just throwing it out there) as well. But 
that's getting greedy for now. PC-BSD 8 is incredibly solid for a BETA 
release and I'm thoroughly impressed.
