Is it possible to set the start url of a High Trust App at deployment time?

From what I can tell it looks like this the url from app manifest gets hard coded into a binary .app file at compile time.

I would like to be able to set this url at deployment time to the each environments url when it is deployed (integration, qa, prod). Is this possible.

I have looked at Import-SPAppPackage and Install-SPApp but was not able to find anything.

I was looking for this as well and I couldn't find anything either. I ended up writing a little app to unzip the .app file change the value of the start url and then zipping it back up with the same app name. Then deploying this .app to sharepoint with the url i wanted.
