Can support files like mp3 or jpeg be build into the assembly? With the box
system these files can be build in a simple package that is like an executable
for the user (since the user can invoke the binaries in it with a single command
'box --run').

I'd like to remind anyone interested in working on this that Portable .NET assemblies and JavaTM .jar files are not the only executable programs to be delivered through the DotGNU platform. The plug-in architecture should not rely on any special PE-specific format.
