On Windows, all files can have alternative streams with additional data. It is a form of hidden metadata that is attached to the main filename.

Or, if you are a big fan of abusing file formats, you might want to

In Windows this is not an abuse, executable files have provision for version metadata ("resource") and you're supposed to use it properly. Pity this doesn't apply portably to all file types, innit.
