You can decrease the size of your setup file if you add
this line at the top of your NSIS script

SetCompressor lzma

If you like I can get involved in the development of minor

lzma is slow. Also lzma usually compresses everything at a
whole and not each file individually. So to decompress,
temporary files have to be created.

I'll try to see which impact the lzma headers have if not
using solid compression.
