[erlang-questions] Erlang "jar" file?

Does erlang support the idea of an archived collection of compiled code, like
a jar file? I know that Joe Armstrong wrote a tool called ear that creates
an archive for stand alone erlang (see http://www.sics.se/~joe/sae.html).
But I got the impression that this is not supported by the standard erlang
distribution (or is no longer being actively developed).

All the interpreter really needs to do is to be able to load the .beam files
in from an archived file (say zip format). So, can it currently do so?
