Mac "Music/Audio Music Apps" File Permissions Note for all Plugin Developers!

This is not a primarily JUCE issue, but just a note for other Developers.

By one of my customers, my plugin couldn't save its settings into  "Music/Audio Music Apps" (this folder should be used, because of Sand-boxing)

The reason was, that another installer, once created the "Audio Music Apps" Folder with root-write permissions only

"drwxr-xr-x  4 root            staff  136 May 24  2014 Audio Music Apps"

But then, no other app, can write into this folder.

So beware of it, because the "Music" is in the Home-Directoy of a user, just create the folder with same user as owner.

"drwxr-xr-x  11 username  staff       374  2 Nov  2014 Audio Music Apps"
