I do not see a big reason why not except I do not know how, with the SDK's debugger, you can put the collector into custom mode. I presume that's possible, maybe even just a change in the package.xml file, but I have never tried that. I'm assuming in this case that you'd use the ability to start the collector from the command line without rebuilding the collector in order to avoid splitting apart a finished collector into its base pieces and parts.
If you get it working, please write back. I'd like to see that work, as it's a place where troubleshooting could still be painful.
