[kepler-dev] from nightly builds to a poor man's installer

Hi Bertram,

The nightly build currently generates a compiled version of things but 
we don't make the results available.  We had discussed using the 
products of the nnightly build to update Ilkay's Java web start 
directory every night.  That would effectively make the current build 
available to everyone with a single click. We're still having some 
problems with the JWS version, but I suspect it could be patched up 
relatively quickly -- the hard part is being sure that the ant buidl 
script completely creates everything needed for the JWS distribution -- 
then its just a matter of copying them into the right location.
