Has anyone figured out how to create a shortcut to a Metro app (That is, to the app itself, not to the Metro start.)?

The only way I have seen is something like How to launch Metro Apps from the desktop. Which doesn't get you an individual app which is probably what you want.

I find it rather easy to simply tap the Windows Key to Switch back and forth to the Metro start screen.
