Has anyone built a web interface, out of interest?  That would be much more likely to be useful on an ARM board too, as it could provide a configuration frontend.

Almost!  It now downloads the archive, but fails when creating /var/cache (doesn't exist on MacOS X).  Is there an environment variable to control this (or configure time option)?
