untagle that dependency? Creating a separate uninstaller script that attempts to
delete the contents of the installation directory after invoking uninstall.jar
doesn't work, unless I put a delay. However, the length of time it will take
uninstaller.jar to run is unpredictable, so a fixed delay is not really a good
