one issue that prevents me from properly fixing the problem is, that i
currently have no indication of whether the VBScript unzip (as used on
windows, and non-functional on wine) succeeds or not (even if "wsh57" is
not installed).

in the meantime i've added a deken-preference flag that prevents the
downloaded package file from being deleted after a "successfull"
