Description
Placeholder for what we want to do with the installer. Might need
better installer for Solaris and Linux, as well as Windows.

EVALUATION

Well, we didn't do anything for Linux or Solaris but the Nullsoft installer
is IN for Windows.  The #1 thing about Nullsoft is the small install header
size - Nullsoft only adds about 50k to the I18N Java Web Start (less for
US-only) and has a pretty good feature set for such a small size.

Nullsoft uses .nsi script files to build installers.  The nullsoft source has
been modified from a free distribution from Nullsoft, Inc to accomadate
JavaWS install requirements (internationalization was the big one).

The Nullsoft source is in src/win32/nsis.  exehead is the executable header,
which is built and then appended with a data block by the built makenssi,
which is the script compiler.
