Portable App add-ons

Is there any way of making an add-on to an existing portable app?
I'm making a portable bochs and thinking of having the included dlxlinux folder as an optional add-on to save on space (from 9mb to 4mb).

Better Not To

You can have it downloadable as a separate plugin installer. But if you're only talking about 5MB, it's better to just include it. We're moving away from the OptionalFiles part of the installer being used for anything except languages as the majority of users will be using the app store going forward and having optional files prevents automation.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
