Are there such beasts? I didn't know this is a Wine extension...
But even if it is, one thing we can do is to integrate the
bin2res into the build process. We can place the embedded data
inside comments, and run bin2res before compiling an .rc file.
It is quite fast, it will not add anything significant to the
build process, and will get rid of the defines in the process.
Plus it will make it a lot more explicit how this bin2res
business works, it is not a all clear when you've never worked
with it before (and I speak from personal experience :)).
