Well, no - but it is installable through SqueakMap so the answer is
"Yes, if you first install SqueakMap which you can easily do by simply
choosing open->package loader with an Internet connection available".

SAR is typically used to bundle multiple changesets and/or resource
files into an autoinstallable package. I haven't used it myself but take
a look at the package SARBuilder.

Well, a package published on SqueakMap should probably not "start"
immediately on installation. It seems better to let the user "start" it

Btw - Projects are also autoinstallable through SqueakMap.
