in Deployment Toolkit plugins, only a signed installer can be run after signature verification.
We would like to add a registry key to allow unsigned installers to be run after the error is displayed.  The builds are not signed untill promotion, and we need to test the ability to specify a kernel installer, and interaction with the kernel using the setAdditionalPackages() method.  This testing could be done before promotion if we add this registry key.
