hmmm.... executable image ... posing as shell script, that's neat.

I tried changing the second line from the default
  exec gst -I $0 -a $@
  exec gst -I $0 -gqK browser/ -a $@
but the image could not be loaded anymore. I guess that somewhere the
offset of the image data is hardcoded.

Would it be a good thing to determine the offset at startup time? Then
you could create "stand-alone executables" (relatively speaking), who
know how to call themselves, which seems fitting for OO development :-)
