Need an executable wrapper for kernel installer.

EVALUATION We can use the jinstall code to create a .exe that can do this. The jkernel should be an online installer just like the JRE. I think it's a good idea to always have it be of msi type "consumer". If the user already has a consumer version of the family installed, the .exe will download the patch msi instead.
