JRE install bundles for 6u10 are non-executable

Andrew raises a good point.
It's true that Sun does not provide binaries for OpenJDK,
and the code that deploys them is not open source,
but... it would be nice if Sun did provide OpenJDK binaries
(since Sun builds them)
and I would certainly expect the web deployment code
to become open source eventually, even if not technically
a part of OpenJDK.
If I were still at Sun, I probably would have used
Sun's internal bug-tracking system to report such bugs.
