Here is my update to pbpcat, it includes more instructions with the download as well as a much improved pbpcat and improved functions for dealing with pbpPlus files. Among the improvements are that pbpcat can now add files in seperate passes, extract files, do a listing of all files contained within the pbp and some other things.
Download the new version here.

I come bearing a release of a tool which I hope some of you will find useful. PBPCat adds extra files into an EBOOT.PBP, and basically works as an alternative to bin2o in the way that it lets you store files within the eboot and allows you to read them back from within the program.
There is a small sample included, and the packer was compiled with mingw and only comes with a windows makefile. You should use the header files included with the sample to extract files.
This is a really simple program using the PBP file description found in YAPSPDoc.
An EBOOT.PBP can have a maximum size approaching 24mb, I assume that this is because at some point in the loading process the whole pbp is loaded into memory, however as you will see in the sample the additional data is not loaded into memory until you load it.
Hopefully this will improve the way homebrew is packaged, meaning fewer files are cluttered around and making it very slightly harder for people to steal sprites, etc.
Well enough waffle, here is the program.
