We made changes in the launcher to support Oracle
Java 7 in general, but that was only Windows and Linux because Oracle didn't
provide Java 7 on Mac. We also already support bundled JRE's on non-Mac
platforms. It's quite likely that launcher logic will need to be
different for Mac though. This part definitely sounds like a valid enhancement
for our launcher.
