I wonder too...
In a world where the unit of measure of the capacity of a hard disk is Terabyte, it looks like a waste of time.

I'm sorry to be blunt, but others have answered clearly already: don't do it. It looks like you want to redistribute it, and the license doesn't allow that.

Talking about Windows (ST2 Portable) here:

sublime_text.exe is already 5MB
Other runtime dlls are ~1.5MB
Python is 4MB
Other Python modules are 3.8MB

All the default packages together are 4MB (*2 in portable)

This sums up to ~20MB where you can at most delete some default packages and some Python modules you don't use which sums up to about 9MB (counting that packages are both zipped and extracted). And I'd certainly not want to delete files from an already installed program.
