I agree, it just keeps going around in circles.

But these ThinApps aren't (just) statically linked executables.
They could be implemented with DLL's if you wanted :-)

The closest things I can think of are:
 - TCL 'StarKits' &
 - self-extracting archives

The key design point is "a real VM in a single EXE" - no muss, no fuss,
no big install...

How thin? NFI :-(
