I have a half-finished project that uses a slightly different approach: we did a course teaching some principles of computer programming and imaging to children, http://www.nf.mpg.de/kinderuni/kinderuni_en.html, where Aquamacs was customized for easy Python programming and I added some Org-mode specific stuff while I was at it. Here, we used a wrapper-type "application" (a Python script turned into a Mac-type program by Platypus, http://www.sveinbjorn.org/platypus) that starts an unmodified version of Aquamacs with

EMACS = "/Applications/Aquamacs.app/Contents/MacOS/aquamacs"
os.system("open -a " + EMACS + " --args -l " + el_file + " -eval '(message \"KinderUni - happy coding!\")' &")

where el_file sets up some special menus (with nice and large icons) and settings for python and Org-mode. I might have some time over the next six weeks to polish and release this.

Warm regards,
