[kepler-dev] build a custom actor

Putting your Jar files into kepler/lib/jar (or any level below that)  
will cause them to be put on the runtime classpath, I believe.  
Ideally, you would use KAR files to bundle up actors with stuff they  
need, and then you could import that in another Kepler installation;  
I've never actually tried it myself, though, so someone else could  
probably speak on that better.
