There are people that find the instantiation and startup of Java to take too 
long so they serialize the whole instantiated GUI and then write that to a 
binairy blob to the jar file.
The client then starts the GUi by deserialising that file and showing it.

I think its butt-ugly and feel it does not need to be supported, but there 
are people out there (mostly companies) that do it.  So, now you know :)
