No, it's exporting symbols to reference the resource data directly, in
case you don't want to go to the trouble of parsing the resource
directory and you just want the data. It's true that the header is not
really useful since you can add extern statements in the code that
uses the data; I think we should keep the -g option though, otherwise
in asm mode you are forced to parse the resource descriptor which
isn't much fun.
