Hi Hamlin,

One more suggested improvement.   Instead of two copy/paste copies of 
the launch with options code,
it would cleaner to create a separate RMID.launch(String[] options) 
method that would be passed the extra arguments.
Use it in forceLogSnapshot.java and ShutdownGracefully.java.

The (current) no-arg version could call the version with args with an 
empty array(or null).
There would be only 1 copy of the launch algorithm.
