Hi again,

Yes! Exactly what I what I was thinking of. Plenty of nice options, too. 
Now nothing can stop me from filling a CD with only the program binary 

Just two thoughts:

- Why not link it from your page? I checked, and you link to other 
"Stuff", but not to this. Shame, really.

- The usage of -d and -p should be documented a bit better. A single 
paragraph with an example would suffice. I'd offer to write it for you, 
but I'd just get it wrong !-)
