The idea (see http://github.com/esl/run_eqc) was that it should be possible to deliver an application as a single archive, supporting command-line operations, interactive code loading, and compilation including hrl files, parse_transforms etc., without having to unpack the archive.

+1 on this feature -- it opens some very interesting doors.

It's unfortunate that .so's require a file name (versus handle). I
suppose one could work around this in individual libraries by copying
the .so into /tmp before opening it.
