Speaking of Electron: One of the main complaints against it is the massive install + memory size. Could Microsoft or GitHub (the corporate sponsors) ship an “ElectronSupport” app that was Developer ID signed, and only served to vend Electron libraries/resources to apps?

I guess I sort of hesitate to suggest improvements that would make Electron more viable, but just as a technical curiosity, this is an option I would be looking at if I were an Electron evangelist.
