JRE-Installer should pre-populate deployment cache with JavaFX Libraries.

The JavaFX libraries should be setup as JNLP extensions in a well known permanent location (URL).

The libraries should not be bundled with the JRE  installer.   At the end of the installation, we should launch "javaws -import [javafx url]" in background and have it bring down the libraries silently.

We might need some changes to the deployment download engine and see what can we handle this background download efficiently, e.g, what to do if the client tries to start a javafx application while this backround download is still in progress.
