The "to" should be "so" - that will make it parse better, but probably
still doesnt answer your question :-)

Greg wrote a script that I use to brand .DLL/.EXE files with a version
resource - eg, I brand the win32all package _after_ the final build - the
version strings are written after it has been built and tested.

However, this code fails for .DLL/.EXE files without any resources at all.
This dummy resource gets around that problem.

It can safely be ignored for inclusion into the core...
