Hmm, I didn't quite realize that. I'm creating a new edit icon bar, so 
the cookbook requires some images, which I'd put into a sub-directory 
inside cookbook, to make installation by the user easier. If that's 
still a security risk, then I guess the install will need to include 
extracting to the cookbook directory, and probably the pub directory.

I don't need this for this cookbook, but I did wonder how to do it, 
thanks! :)
