Not supported, yet. (On my list, along with versioning.)

I'll fix the documentation to clarify that "plt-installer.ss" depends
on MrEd. I'll look into adding a non-GUI version, too.

Meanwhile, one possibility is to run Setup PLT via "setup-unit.ss", and
give it the archive names via `current-command-line-arguments'.

Include an "info.ss" in the collection that defines
`install-collection'. Search for "install-collection" in Help Desk for
more info.

I'll add something about this to the "creating distribution archives"
section in the mzc manual.

Tricky. The .plt format is completely defined in
plt/collects/setup/doc.txt, so anything's possible. But nothing makes
this easy right now.

If you're interested in trying to extend the current unpacker, start
with plt/collects/setup/unpack.ss.
