Solution to the SageMath-x.y.app vs. SageMath.app issue, per a comment by slelievre at https://ask.sagemath.org/question/51969/how-allow-renaming-sagemath-xyapp-to-sagemathapp-for-sagetex/ <https://ask.sagemath.org/question/51969/how-allow-renaming-sagemath-xyapp-to-sagemathapp-for-sagetex/>

	“The app needs to be renamed before using it for the first time.”

So I just deleted SageMath-9.1.app from /Applications, downloaded sage-9.1-OSX_10.11.6-x86_64.app.dmg <http://mirrors.mit.edu/sage/osx/intel/sage-9.1-OSX_10.11.6-x86_64.app.dmg> again, reinstalled, and renamed to “SageMath.app”. Now I can use it the normal way, as an app that opens the Jupyter notebook interface in Safari, and of course I can newly create the desired symlinks to use sagetex from within TeXShop (without having to re-create them each time a new version of SageMath is released).

> When I searched for ``rename SageMath app'' I got one that mentioned TeXShop. The main point was that once you make the symlinks you can no longer move the SageMath app to a different location. Remember that symlinks are NOT the same thing as Apple's alias which do follow moves.
