    gensquashfs can be used to produce SquashFS images from gen_init_cpio like file listings or simply pack an input directory.
    rdsquashfs can be used to inspect and unpack SquashFS images.
    sqfs2tar can turn a SquashFS image into a tarball, written to stdout.
    tar2sqfs can turn a tarball (read from stdin) into a SquashFS image.
    sqfsdiff can compare the contents of two SquashFS images.

perhaps some of the above could provide
alternative method for creating / profiling/testing squashed ".tcz" extensions ?

eg as is mentioned @ http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,22854.0.html " XZ compression in kernel + tcz; squashfs with xz + biger block size "
