Zabrane,

The OTP doc says an escript can contain "Erlang source code, an  
inlined beam file or an inlined archive file."
http://www.erlang.org/doc/man/escript.html

For an example of an escript containing an inlined archive, check out  
how the excellent "rebar" bootstraps itself (an OTP application and  
release build tool).

Cheers,
Chris Bernard
