Multiple copies should be no problem as it's a transient Utility so it's
only in memory while it runs. The only 'problem' is updating all copies
when there's a new version.

Including it in an application is fine. At least 3 apps already come
with TestACS included: Director, StrongED and Tamarc.

Another way to distribute it is to put in a pseudo !Boot where TestACS
is placed in the Library directory. A user can then add it to !Boot by
using Configuration -> Boot -> Install.
