[izpack-devel] InstallerListener interface change for the nextrelease

Hi Vladimir,
until now the an InstallerListener will be invoked only during
InstallPanel works. But if you need a listener just after 
initialization, why not...
If afterInstallerInitialization will be implemented in 
SimpleInstallerListener the developers which derive from it
(e.g. I :-)) will be have no problem. There is a member 
	private installdata 
and public getter and setter for it. Until now it is set
in beforePacks if that method is not implemented in the derived
class or the super will be called (as in my private code).

If we expand, should we add more entry points like 
beforeEnd and so on?
