      Description

      This bug describes a set of changes to jpackage CLI options.
      A separate bug is filed to address the corresponding changes to the help text.

      1.) remove the following options:
        --overwrite, --strip-native-command, --runtime-installer
      2.) rename options --build-root to temp-root, and --secondary-launcher to add-launcher
      3.) remove mac-app-store installer-type on mac. (and associated options)
      4.) remove short form of several options
      5.) change the behavior of --add-modules option when used with non-modular application
      6.) update implementation of "@argfile" control option to conform to javac implementation.
      7.) add code to prohibit, and properly document certain combinations of mutually exclusive options.
      8.) various clean-up's
      9.) remove --category and add --linux-menu-group. Adjust code that used fallback to category to not fallback (--win-menu-group and --linux-menu-group will be the default if not specified, no longer falling back to vendor and category.
      in the comments below I will explain the expected new behavior and changes required.
