Greg, one very important detail: please do not use the "Java" key in the Info.plist - that will trigger LaunchServices to go out an download Java SE 6 (it's our only way to determine if an app requires Apple's Java 6 before actually launching it).

This is why I had changed that key to "JVMInfo" in the initial implementation of the launcher.
