Also, I think a Software Valet compatible installer would be preferred to re-creation, and should be relatively easy as a .PKG is for the most part a zipped folder with a shell script for installing (If I remember correctly...)

Unfortunately it isn't that simple. I've done some research and while the embedded files are compressed with zlib streams, the pkg file itself uses a custom catalog format, which I'm reverse engineering as we speak.
