Add notion of Installer to automatically install a container distribution

Description

It would be nice to add an Installer interface and a ZipURLInstaller implementation class that can install locally a container from a URL. This would allow to completely automate the full functional testing cycle, i.e. the user will not even need to install a container locally, it will get downloaded the first time.

This is especially interesting for the damagecontrol build that I'd like to set up on codehaus, as there'll be no need to install any container on that machine and simply by updating the project.properties file we'll be able to add tests on new containers.
