Patched WixTask java source file

When customizing the wix ui library, lit.exe instead of light.exe are used to
produce a wix library instead of a msi binary. for example:

candle.exe MyWixUI_InstallDir.wxs ....
lit.exe -out MyWixUI_InstallDir.wixlib MyWixUI_InstallDir.wixobj ...

lit is almost same as light except it used to produce library, not msi final

There is no need to write a task for lit only since very likely it used in same
way as light, so here is the proposal to have a lit attribute in wix task, by
default it is false, means light.exe will be invoked, when set to true, it will
invoke lit instead.

<dn:wix target="MyWixUI_InstallDir.wixlib"
      <sources dir="src" includes="*.wxs"/>

a patched version of WixTask is attached for reference.
