This is first implementation of -html.

Well more easy then expected, but not working as expected... So this is moreover preview and work is 
still in progess (any hint to current impl welcomed!)

Well it do what its description says. The param is html page, it finds an applet on it, and then 
lunch it... So some shortcut to already implemented shortcut, but it was not intended to be.

TRight now it have many flaws:
        1) generate jnlp instead of runn directly plugin bridge
            cannot (sometimes)load html resource, beause it is actually on /tmp
        2) plugin.jar should be on javaws classpath too:(
        3) too often needs -nosecurity

1) really should be fixed asap (by me, during this changeset) othewrwise it looses sense
2) those is dont know right now, many appelts needs JSObject, but having it, any runs, but more of 
them fails in runtime later. So it is really question whether to burden javaws with plugin.jar or 
work differently
3) this s "I dont understan now: because it is doing the same as generated jnlp shortct from 
previous patch (yes this one is on to of it) . Jnlp shortcut works, but this /tmp one dont... Anyway 
must be fixed in this changeset or later too.
