I could swear that an earlier version of the Standalone Builder  
allowed you to include the standard image and pattern libraries. I  
posed a question about this a few months ago, but didn't get any  
response. I think it's needed, because if you use images or patterns  
from the "standard" or even *shudder* Metcard libraries ;-) they  
disappear in the standalone.

If this isn't done already, I'll submit a feature enhancement to  
QCzilla. Anybody know anything about this?
