That sounds like a headache... and won't help with distribution (which
will have the compiled file).  Probably easier to do it at runtime,
getting the file into some /tmp, then using it from there -- ?

But then the problem is that running scribble on the file should
probably ask you if you want to get it from there...  (IOW, still
sounds like a pain.)
