I've been thinking about looking at integrating it in somewhere as a resource.
I currently integrate my Changelog and Release notes into the binary as compressed resources using 
lazres. I just decompress them into streams as required and use loadfromstream() in memo components 
to display them.

If I can figure out how to integrate simple resources using the new fpc resource stuff, I'll do it 
that way.

train Americans to stand at the edge of the pool and throw them
