[ Using Zero Install to run Xara ]

Your bz2 binary package seems to work already without modification
(tested on Debian/stable and Debian/unstable).

Except for the 'Help -> Xara Xtreme Help...' feature, which just opens
http://www.xaralx.org/ in a web-browser. Is this expected? I see there
is a xaralxHelp.tar.gz inside the main tar.bz2. Should it be using
this? Why is there a compressed-archive-within-a-compressed-archive?

If this is supposed to be extracted during the install then that makes
things a bit tricky (Zero Install has no install-time scripts, as
installation must be side-effect free). Storing it uncompressed inside
the main archive would make things simpler.

I've attached a sample
XML file you can use to describe it: just choose a URL for it and sign
it with your GPG key.

Did you have any problems with this? I can help out if something isn't working.
