You are correct.  Tlmgr_cwrapper is mine; it calls setuid(geteuid()) so perl works with Apple's privileged task launching, and it also handles IPC so the main app can show output/progress.  Herb copy-and-pasted from the TLU log view, which intersperses my output with that of tlmgr and underlying utilities.  I'm not terribly motivated to rename the wrapper app at the moment, but I'll think on it.
