I'm not sure how it could of worked unless the engine has an
undocumented feature whereby it can load the binary data of an
external. If it does then that would be very cool. I've never heard of
that before though.

You have to point 'the externals' property to a file on disk. You
could try spitting out your binary data into a file in the temp
directory and then assigning the externals property of the stack to
that temp file.
