Can you describe the exact functionality you're looking for? What is the 
purpose you'd apply to something like this?

QEMU would be useful if you want to run an application that is build for 
another architecture (either just the app, or a whole OS environment).

Otherwise you might be able to do something with a chroot'd environment, build 
from a self-extracting archive (e.g. makeself). Depends on what you need.
