An initial prototype of the jpackager tool has been pushed to a new
'JDK-8200758-branch' branch in the JDK sandbox . If anyone is
interested in taking a look, you can clone it as follows:
hg clone http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk/sandbox
hg update JDK-8200758-branch
I plan to reply to the feedback already provided, and update the JEP 
next week some time, but in the mean time if you have additional
questions or comments, feel free to reply.
