LC8 release structure

Does exists some way to install only the files changed
between each version and keep all common files available
for each LC version in use?

In this way, instead of using 1 Gb for each new Livecode version
installed, we could keep a folder with common files and each
new LiveCode version would occupy only 200 or 100 mb each.

Basically, each new Livecode version would include only
the files updated or changed compared with the previous
Livecode version installed.

Could this works for LiveCode IDE?
