Uh, thanks, I think :P.  I'm certainly interested in adding it to TCOBrowser, but unless someone wants to collaborate on development, it just won't happen.  I have /no/ time to do this myself, especially since I don't need the functionality (and TCOBrowser already lets you extract the MikTeX files into ~/Library/texmf).
