If the Idea folks want to reduce the # of support calls, the bundled
JREJDK should not show up as a JDK to be used for projects.
The bundled thing should be, as Mike says, an internal component of IDEA
that stys hidden within it
Idea on startup (or on first project creation)
if no development JDKs are defined should ask the user to locate one first.
