Creating a custom package installer?

The best I can tell, there is no link to
<> on <>.  During an
admittedly quick look, I couldn't find a link to it anywhere. Presuming
there is a link somewhere, maybe it could be someplace less obscure.

Or is hiding this official policy ("WJM")?  :-)

Actually, things very much like this have been asked in the past so there's
a page that talks about creating setup servers.  You should be able to get
a feel for what you need from this and other docs on setup and it's format.
