      Thanks for the discussion. It's been educational.

      As a matter of personal taste, I'd avoid this kind of stuff.

      I like this approach much better! Especially now that it has been
      blessed by somebody who presumably has clue what's going on :-)

      Is deRez'ing gui_mac.rsrc basically equivilant to de-compiling it?
      If so, would it be too onerous to re-write gui_mac_static.r by hand, or
      find the guy that wrote the original? If we're going to have some kind
      of source around, it might as well be readable, eh?
