Is there anything like RetinaPad for the MacBook Pro Retina?

Essentially, it would be something that would automate the process of setting NSHighResolutionCapable to true so that text would render properly, even if all the graphics aren't updated yet.

If this doesn't exist, would it be something that could be accomplished using SIMBL?

It sounds like Retinizer might be what you're looking for. It's reversible, works on a per app/per user basis, and doesn't require you to edit the Info.plist files directly. I don't have an MBP, so I can't test it myself, but the pictures look pretty :)
