LaunchCodes: Creator Code Support for Snow Leopard

New $5 utility by Ross Carter and Patrick Thomson. LaunchCodes partially restores the pre-10.6 behavior of setting default applications for files based on HFS creator codes (rather than the 10.6 behavior of relying solely on file name extensions). It does this with no hacks, just good clean by-the-book cleverness.

It’s not perfect, though, as Michael Tsai explains.
