Extract a wsp using Powershell (SharePoint 2007)

I just found a cool way to extract a wsp that has already been deployed using powershell:

[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName(“Microsoft.SharePoint”)
$site = new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite(“<site collection url>”)
$farm = $site.webapplication.farm
$file = $farm.solutions.item(“siterequest.wsp”).solutionfile
$file.SaveAs(“<path>\siterequest.wsp”)
