Why remove them (especially the studio one)?  These installers are not in
the ApacheDS top project.  The installers project is standalone for managing
all our installers.

I like the suite installer because it allows for an ApacheDS formal
installation in addition to having it available to start via Studio.  But
you might be right about this.  Wonder what others thinking as well.
