Is it like

Hope you did it in a more general fashion. (I have no time slices now
to look at/test you code, sorry).

I always felt that such a thing should belong to tcc upstream, thanks for
doing this.

I am not a fan of "including everything" in an application package, I
prefer global file systems when you always have at hand those parts
which you _need_ but not have to keep with you all the parts you _might_ need.

Anyway, having a single executable which does all the job is sometimes
very handy and tcc looks like a very suitable target.
