Agreed.  I had been toying with this when looking at snapshot issues.

I think we need one program that exec()s itself into ../jre/bin/$NAME,
which hopefully is just the tweaked launcher we have now and use that to
fill in jdk/bin.  Maybe that can be the launcher too, but I think the
launcher has achieved optimum complexity for what it's supposed to do :)
