Simplify including external files in Formaline

Issue #2218 new
Erik Schnetter created an issue

Formaline uses a complicated mechanism to include tarballs of the thorns into the executable, requiring running perl scripts and adding additional source files. This can be simplified. See https://hsyl20.fr/home/posts/2019-01-15-fast-file-embedding-with-ghc.html for how to implement this.

    That would be much faster for sure. My concern at glancing at the website is how portable this will be given that one has to produce an assembler file and this may be much less portable than C code.
