To be accurate, what happen if one drag and drop a jpeg file in an
image, then save a project file, move the project in another computer
without the original jpeg file? Is the jpeg file saved in the .pr zip
file as well?

As a concrete simple example, how can I examine the content of this
project file http://swiki.ofset.org:8000/super/36 (produced with a 3.8

It use 3 graphics and I am really curious to know what inside the .pr file.

The info I got from the .pr is:
hilaire at tice:/tmp$ file ENGRENAGE4.001.pr
ENGRENAGE4.001.pr: gzip compressed data, from FAT filesystem (MS-DOS, OS/2, NT)

Once gunzipped, I can't examine the content...
