This is good to know.  I really thought resource files or rather files with
resource forks where frowned upon and that older resources were being 
replaced by some other bundled file type  containing a data fork.

That makes life easier.

Resource files are not frowned upon. The FB editor has a resource file
containing a 'crsr' 1000 resource (you can see it via a contextual
Show Package Contents command in the Finder). The freeware Rezilla.app
can create and edit cursors. The entire code required to display a
resource cursor consists of two words, for example:
cursor _lineSelCursor
