InstantDB: Reading .prp file from a jar


I'm deploying an application using java web start, which only allows the download of .jar files, and need to include the .prp file for instantdb in the jar.  I'm creating the database on the fly and locating it in c:\temp, so I don't need to have the actual database files in the jar, just the .prp file.  The kicker though seems to be that the jdbc connect string doesn't understand urls, only file references which seems rather odd to me in the context of java being a network aware language.  It seems it would be rather simple to modify the source to support reading the .prp file from a jar, but I can't seem to find the source, as the instantdb CVS.
 
Has instantdb been opensourced, and if so, where can I find the source.  If not, would it be possible to have the mod I need done performed, it should be rather simple, a matter of calling Thread.currentThread().getContextClassLoader().getResource(filename) if new File(filename) fails...
