The enhancement got the approval (from Andrew Hughes) and my plan was
to get to a decision as to the *how* on the 8u review thread. Right now
there are two options:

A) Mimic JDK 9+

CLI launch => $ jhsdb clhsdb
GUI launch => $ jhsdb hsdb

That's what the current webrev does.

B) Create separate launchers for CLI/GUI. Perhaps this?

CLI launch => $ jclhsdb
GUI launch => $ jhsdb

B) is Kevin's proposal.

Any opinions?
