i wrote an escript (besea) that is an executable archive handler 
(add/extract/run/etc). it does need a working escript on the targert 
(and that means at least CEAN is installed).

is that something similar to what you need?

Those were the days...
    EPO guidelines 1978: "If the contribution to the known art resides
    solely in a computer program then the subject matter is not
    patentable in whatever manner it may be presented in the claims."
