I am exploring single-instance functionality for the next release and
since that script is a mechanism for it on OSX, it would be documented
and made more readily available in the future. It has been updated for

As a quick hack for this release, if a TEXTADEPTJIT environment variable
is not empty, the JIT instance will load. This is experimental,
undocumented, and subject to change. I will enable and document this or a
