Description (last modified by trev)

Background

We currently require a special patched xar tool that is buggy and appears to be generally unmaintained. In addition, the command line interface is quite messy.

What to change

Turns out, the archive format isn't exactly complicated, so we can generate the archives ourselves from Python.
