Hmm, usually a script cd's to its own directory, and our script makes a sub-directory there. so the unpack-directory should be where the packed script is. have you hit an exception?

its 2 chars shorter. i always forgot to copy blocks, until a changed to 'cp for this initialize-stuff. also i like the difference between 'copy as "make a copy" and 'cp as "make something new". maybe i should really switch to [new: :copy] if people use 'cp like you?
