[Axiom-developer] Crazy idea

I have no idea how workable this is, but would it be possible to
combine the windows axiom, wintexmacs, and whatever other pieces are
needed into a single installable archive?  I can't help thinking it
would be really cool to have something like the following:

a) use InnoSetup (or another such tool, but InnoSetup is totally free
and has so far worked very well with Maxima releases) to make the
archive+install dialogs.  Check out the current Maxima windows release
for an example.  This will result in one very large but totally self
contained installable.

b) Set up an icon+startup config so clicking on an Axiom icon will
start up TeXmacs with an Axiom session in it.  Wala, a nice clean
spiffy user experience out of the box.  Can TeXmacs be set up that way?

I dunno if this makes much sense, but given how big Axiom is anyway and
how fast the internet has become, mightn't it be worth the extra space
to have a package like that?
