I don't think that is the right model. I would rather have any
resource files etc from a .jar be compiled into the executable
(or shared library). Our model is that gcj uses .so files where
jdk uses .jar files. (At least at run time - we do use .jars
at compile time.)
Thus a resource file should be compiled to an initialized
byte array in a read-only data segment.
