yup, there's three little bugs though:
 - the progress bar doesn't update while packing/unpacking stuff
 - when unpacking stuff and not choosing anything to install there should be a
   dialog box saying something like "Nothing selected.".
 - you didn't include dot-files (e.g. apps/.file) in your .kamion files.

Other than that it works fine!

Have fun then :)

Sure... I won't have much time though... diploma examinations and diploma 
thesis are coming up in two weeks. Oh well. But for answering mail it should 
still suffice :-)
