Just one other small note about this. Although AFAIK Windows won't let you delete a loaded PE file, it /will/ let you rename it. I don't even think you need any special privileges to do it (don't quote me). (Don't test this using explorer, it has anti-running-program-renaming code for some unfathomable reason).
This suggests an even better (maybe) solution to the problem. Unless there are other platforms than Win32/64 that need this (?), the entire .exe shell-game codepath could be sent to /dev/null and all platforms could work the same. Maybe this breaks on networked drives or something. Probably you guys are 10 steps ahead of me on this, but I just thought I'd mention it in case you weren't.
