Comment(by refold):

 ELF equivalent of `windres` is [http://ktown.kde.org/~frerich/elfrc.html

 If we choose to implement resource file support, it should be also
 available to the users of Cabal. I propose the following interface:

    * A `resource-files:` field in the `.cabal` file
    * An auto-generated `Resources_$packagename.hs` file of the following

 foreign import ccall "&" _imgdata :: CString

 imgdata :: CStringLen
 imgdata = (_imgdata, 405585)
