It would be nice to have an option similar to -layout but only downloads the files needed for the bundle to install successfully on that computer.

I would use -layout (was at one point strongly thinking about it) but the problem is my bundle installs .net 4.0 and VS2010 C++ redistributes which are unnecessary (and large).

I'd like to have my app download the bundle EXE and then use that to download all the files behind the scenes and then prompt the user that there's an update to the app available. Then it can install the update very quickly since everything is local.
