[launchd-dev] Configurion a Cocoa app as a user agent

I have a Login Item that I'd like to replace with a 
~/Library/LaunchAgent. It's a LSUIElement=YES Cocoa application.

What should the executable path be? If I set it to the bundle 
folder, is launchd smart enough to figure out that its an 
application? Or do I need to set it to .../MyApp.app/Contents/MacOS/MyApp?

I ask because I've been warned by the Cocoa engineers to avoid 
starting applications that way.
