 Replying to [comment:6 mcs]:
 > My preferred solution is to modify the update_responses script to create
 symlinks when it extracts the complete MAR files.  It can do this by
 looking inside updatev3.manifest for lines that begin with addsymlink.
 The full syntax is:
 >   addsymlink "link-path" "target-path"
 > e.g.,
 >   addsymlink "TorBrowser/Tor/PluggableTransports/TorBrowser.app.meek-
 http-helper/Contents/Resources" "../../../../../Contents/Resources"
 > (this creates a symlink named Resources in .../TorBrowser.app.meek-http-
 helper/Contents/ that points to the browser's Resources directory).

 Sounds good to me.
