In the case of run_eqc, the idea was to be able to have either PropEr or EQC Lite available as zipped archives. This worked beautifully, at least in terms of executing them from within the zip file. However, in order to compile the test code that is supposed to be executed by PropEr/EQC, you need the include file, and this became the _only_ reason why the archive had to be unpacked. And given that you _had_ to extract the .hrl, there wasn't much point in not also extracting the beam files. 

But this made the whole idea of run_eqc less attractive, so I put the project on ice.

In this setting, there is really not much difference between run-time and compile-time. Running EQC without being able to first compile with the help of eqc.hrl is fairly useless.
