Add option to bdist_dmg to place an alias to /Applications inside the DMG.

Description

It's common to include a shortcut/alias to the /Applications directory within distributed DMG files for OS X, as it allows the user to easily drag the application bundle to the alias inside the DMG to install the application.

Since the DMG generated by bdist_dmg is read only and sized to the application bundle, it's difficult to do this after the fact. This adds an option to bdist_dmg to include the alias automatically.
