A couple of questions about distributing for Linux.

When I zip a standalone it loses its executable bit, and the user has to 
manually set it after it's unzipped. Is there a way to compress a file 
so that it remains executable?

Is there a way to stick an icon on the standalone so that it attaches 
when unzipped?
