Yes; in StackRunner, the supported common libraries, icons, cursors, etc.
are all built into the standalone, and since it doesn't have support for
RevOnline, etc., so it is smaller than DCP (3.6 MB for SR vs. 9.5 MB for DCP
- both under OS X).

That's true! One thing to keep in mind, though, and that is on OS X if you
rename the app, it doesn't rename that application menu title when the
program launches, so if you called it "Click Me.app", when they run it, the
application menu will still read "StackRunner" (although a minor adjustment
to the .plist file inside the bundle will fix this as well).
