Correct me if I'm wrong, but won't ~exec with root rights allow scripts to be created that can create symlinks (and install the binaries), thereby bypassing the need to create binary update packages for the existing hacks?

I won't complain if they've made that easy, but... wow!
Yes, the ~exec function is in fact an interactive shell, but with horrible output, so you'll want to get a remote shell. No need to to any other complicated things, just compile the code, install and use
