An initial prototype of the jpackager tool has been pushed to a new 
'JDK-8200758-branch' branch in the JDK sandbox [1]. If anyone is 
interested in taking a look, you can clone it as follows:

     hg clone
     cd ./sandbox
     hg update JDK-8200758-branch

I plan to reply to the feedback already provided, and update the JEP [2] 
next week some time, but in the mean time if you have additional 
questions or comments, feel free to reply.
