[izpack-users] Feature Request - Scripting Languages for custom actions

PS: Asn an FYI,  I've noticed as I'm working on this that the build script
is missing the "classpath-ext" attribute for the build-uninstaller-listener
macro.  Just something that should be there, and i've added it locally.

I am getting somewhere on this though it's very groovy specific, and not
very generic.  I'm not even sure how generic we could really make this given
that there's no real generic API prior to Java 6
for scripting.
