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.

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
