[equinox-dev] [prov] UI for accepting licenses and license management

I just released a first pass at the UI for showing licenses. It is pretty similar to what the current UpdateManager does....a license page in the install or update wizard that lets you look at the licenses for what you are proposing to install, and a radio button for accepting the licenses.

What's different is that there is a pluggable mechanism defined for remembering licenses so that the license review can be skipped if the license has already been seen.

For a description of the mechanism see this bug:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=205232

For a discussion of what we should do in the SDK for remembering licenses, see this bug:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=212218

My goal was just to get something simple in place so we could refine it from there. I am not a licensing expert by any means, so I'm relying on others to look at this implementation and chime in in the bug reports. Thanks....
