This is soooo cool Jim (Yang)! Can't wait to have it. 

Is there a way we can integrate this into the daemon plugins?   Right 
now the daemon plugin for M2 can build all the installers
for apacheds. It's pretty neat.  The plugin uses the Tomcat jsvc and the 
procrun commons daemon code (like the Java Wrapper) and builds
installers that use them for ApacheDS.  The plugin now can invoke the 
installer compilers for Inno setup and for izpack.

Seems to me this new mechanism will use yet another installer builder or 
perhaps something specific to MacOSX.  Excuse my
ignorance here.  But it would be nice to integrate whatever it is with 
the daemon installer plugin some day so we don't have to
generate these installers for MacOSX by hand.  Once you have the process 
down we can perhaps work together to integrate it
into  the M2 build and then it will be as easy to generate installers as 
issuing an 'mvn install' command.
