I'd not seen mkbundle.  I'll have to look into that as well..  this is going
into proprietary code for a customer and I'm not as brushed up on how all of
the GPL/LGPL restrictions affect that as I should be, so I'll have to dig
into that somewhat.  

What's the difference between --aot=full and mkbundle?  --aot=full looked
like it should produce a single binary as well..
