We need to make sure that DRLVM is ready first, although looking at the
the patch, I'm not sure there's much to be done.  Worrysome, given the
boot classpath property.

I am in the process of running for a plane. (There's news...)  Can
someone verify that there will be no problem w/ DRLVM before we do this?

Right - that was my worry, the system property, but I didn't find that
on first pass.

The launcher change is irrelevant for now, since there are other issues
that need to be fixed w/ DRLVM before it works properly w/ the launcher,
where "properly" is defined as "having all the DRLVM artifacts in a
/default or other subdirectory of jre/bin" :)
