Even if you can make it fit, it's not necessarily a good idea to do it.
I'm thinking of the Hoover Dustette.

And hosting these files doesn’t need to be complex. For example, certain

Having done precisely no research into the matter whatsoever, I'm not sure

The wiki architecture isn't necessarily optimized for that use-case.  But
it's probably adequate
for testing the concept.
