      Description

      1.) There have been requests to remove the "create-jre-installer <type>" mode, and to fold that into --create-installer mode, using another option to specify that it is a java runtime that is to be installed.

      2.) There have been requests to remove the <type> arg to create-installer and create a new option to specify the type of installer.

      There may be other syntactical changes to the CLI requested, and they will be added here.

      3.) change --class option to --main-class
      "--main-class" is clearer and also consistent with what jar tool supports (--main-class option)

      4.) remove the --limit-modules option

      5.) request to rename the --force Option
