Is it possible to create an application release without kernel, stdlib and sasl?

Hello.

I've never bothered to create OTP releases before and now decided to
learn about it.

I am playing with a tiny application. Normally when a release is
created it includes whole erlang system - kernel, stdlib and sasl.

Bu on
http://www.erlang.org/doc/design_principles/release_structure.html#id2273097
I nocitced that documentation tells about possibly several ROOT
directories, which sounds to be a handy approach: I would not touch my
systems's erlang core installation and in my own ROOT I would have my
application with their ows release processes.

Is there a way to do so? systools provides some means to exclude
undesired applications from a release, but I had not found a way to
install such release to a new ROOT where core erlang applications are
not installed.
