Would it work to prefix a zipfile with an extracter, thereby
transforming it into a self-extracting .exe file, and then
treat that self-extracting file as a self-installer?  (Or,
would you need for the extracter to also start up the app
after unzipping it?)

I'm anticipating that if we start with a freely-distributable
zipfile, and append it to a freely-distributable extracter,
the combination would still be freely distributable.

BTW I know absolutely nothing about Autohotkey, nor how it
fits into the scheme under discussion.
