[Haskell-cafe] Windows details

I rather doubt anybody will know the answer to this, but I'll ask anyway...
Under MS Windows, if you right-click on an executable file and select
"properties", sometimes there's a "Version" tab that tells you the
version number of the program. And sometimes there isn't. (Most
especially, GHC-compiled programs do not have this tab.) Anybody know
how to go about adding this?
Also, anybody know how to give a GHC-compiled program a custom icon?
If it's going to be really difficult then I won't bother, but it'd be
interesting to know.
(In other news, today I discovered that applying UPX to my 2.8 MB
GHC-compiled executable shrinks it down to 800 KB and it still
functions. And WinZip shrinks it down to just 300 KB. 2.8 MB for a
program that just does a little text parsing does seem a touch excessive
