I also planned to use a VFS when I started, but given my current lua knowlegde this turned out to be a hard 1st step (and BTW: winzip also unpacks tgz files to your temp dir and doesn't remove them afterwards, and its version 9.x). From what I saw I had the fear that it would be necessary to 1st create an IO API for the C core prior to support a standalone exe based on a VFS.
Surely I would be interested in a more clever solution, I already gained what I wanted to gain: learned something.
