I wouldn't be so categorical in excluding loki_setup. While it is  
true that there hasn't been an official releases in years, and  
existing binaries out there (especially from the Loki era) are  
completely outdated, the current code in CVS compiles fine on recent  
boxes and can be used in production installers. I am still using it  
for commercial releases on a variety of platforms.
