something, and thus crashed because tar was still unset.
This will be adressed in the next version correctly. I plan to
generate a plist with the paths upon 'make install' and pick it up
when the app starts.

The attached file contains a directory DIFF/ with 3 diffs and a category
to NSFileManager.

The category adds -locateExecutable: that scans PATH for the specified
executable and returns the path to it.

Thanks a lot. I've refactored Zipper a lot so the patch didn't apply anymore. 
However, I like the NSFileManager category and included it in Zipper's strategy 
to look for unarchivers now. I've also improved the handling of missing 
archivers at startup so that crashes caused by this effect won't happen anymore.

Watch out for a new release shortly,
