So, if one has a paclet documented application, one can MOVE the ENTIRE
application from $UserBaseDirectory/Applications to
$UserBaseDirectory/Autoload and then it will automatically load when
Mathematica is started and it will still appear on the AddOns Documentation
Center page, and all the documentation will be available in the normal
matter.

Seems to work.

The init.m file doesn't go directly into the Autoload directory, but into
the 
Kernel/ subdirectory of an application directory in Autoload.

So, for example,

Autoload/MyApp/Kernel/init.m

This way, multiple applications can be installed into the Autoload directory
and 
Mathematica will be initialized by each one in turn.
