Oh.. sorry Richard. I assumed you would understand the issues so I didn't
elaborate. The custom compress function handles resource forks and
directories. Our built-in compress function doesn't. So we create a stack
with all the required data and use the built-in compress function on that.

Not sure. I don't know if RunRev distribute engines by themselves. One way
to get an engine would be to use the standalone builder to download it.
