[izpack-devel] SimpleFinnishPanel to write auto-installconfiguration

Sorry, I wasn't clear enough. I am just proposing to make the 
SimpleFinnishPanel to write the auto-install config xml file (the one 
generated with the button on the FinnishPanel) in the $InstallPath 
folder. I named the file InstallConfigRecord.xml and when users 
experience problems with your application you can ask them "Send me the 
InstallConfigRecord.xml to see what have you installed". Once you the 
the InstallConfigRecord.xml you can run the installer directly using the 
same config your user has entered (packs selection, userInputPanels 
data, etc).

BTW, I have already implemented it, tested a few times, seems to work 
nice and seamlessly. The patch is attached. Let me know what you think.
