I can't comment on the speed aspect etc..
But I have a number of corporate customers who have sub-contracted their 
IT infrastructure to an external service company.
In my experience these external people then, usually, tend to adopt the 
"umbrella" attitude, whereby they want every other external software 
supplier to supply their software in a manner that will cause themselves 
the least work and the least trouble.  In other words, their ideal is 
that the software be delivered in the form of a single executable, 
pre-parameterised so that they don't even have to choose options in an 
installer, and that they would not bear any responsibility if anything 
should not work as expected.
They are certainly not interested in even having to think about tricky 
customising options.
I am not saying that these are my preferred kind of customers.
(I prefer smart ones, up to a point).
But this is a "use case" for the proposed package, it seems to me.
