Editing a file inside an .msi

I've got the extract and edit part, which made me want to ask if a solution exists that allows to simply edit a file and save with no repacking.

I have all of last nights experience with Orca, that actually peaked my interest. Which led to the question, that if I dont want to change the installer at all, just one character in one existing file and leave everything else intact, whats the easiest method?

You might have to extract the files you want to edit and then drag them back into the archive and replace the originals.
Thats a nice gui for extracting, thanks. (I think uniextract succeded with 7zip but just extracted). Still does not allow me to replace or edit. I get a lot of 'operation not supported' and 'can not update file' errors.
