Embed a file in compiled script

Description

It would be nice to be able to embed a file into the compiled autoit script in order to be able to make scripts similar to a self-contained installation. Forgive my example code for I have not done much autoit scripting yet, but it could look something like the following:

$fileresource=Embed("filename.exe")

Then:
RunEmbedded($fileresouce)
And/or the ability to extract an embedded resource.
ExtractEmbedded($fileresource, "C:\Temp\")

An interpreted version of this script could simply use the physical file, whereas when compiled the file would be fetched from the script EXE. This could be managed by having a resource data-type of some sort.

Why not simply use FileInstall() ?
