That was one of the features I was planning to implement with the
EasyLilyPond installer.
If I were you, I'd forget about .u3p packages. You can simply copy
LilyPond binary files (as found in Program Files\LilyPond) on your
key; then the only problem is that LilyPond needs some environment
variables to work.

There's a program that hooks into the Windows registry and modifies it
on the fly, but I can't remember how it's called (I vaguely remember
some icon that looked like coffee (?) but...). My best guess is that
we'd only need to make such a trick.
