rubyscript2exe: adding version, vendor, etc to exe resource

    In general on Windows you can interrogate the "resource block" to get
    the version string, vendor string, etc. of an executable. Does anyone
    know how I could go about inserting this into a Ruby app that was
    compile with rubyscript2exe? I can't find anything on it.

    Basically, if someone were to run something similar to this discussion:
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/602802/command-line-tool-to-dump-windows-dll-version
    , I'd want the proper info to be returned.

    Thoughts?

    The rubyscript2exe docs mention resource hacker. It looks like it might do
    what you need.
