Cool! Thanks for the pointer. This is something new. The date published is
June 7 2006 which is pretty recent. It happened after I've written my email
about MASM not available.

Anyway, I hope my NASM port will not be discarded because it may be used to
compile Harmony with free as in speech Cygwin or MinGW toolchains.

Sure. I thought I'd have to  experiment with rc or windres utilities so I
gave up at that stage. I didn't know they've invented a special utility
right for the purpose of embedding manifests into executables and dlls.
