Have you considered compressing the executable with PuCrunch
(  It'll provide the file with
a BASIC header, which will invoke a small machine language routine that
copies the decruncher to $00fx-$02xx.  The decruncher will uncompress the
executable and jump to the specified address in the specified RAM/ROM memory
configuration.  PuCrunch supports VIC-20, C64, C128 and the 264 series
(no PET or PET-II support).
