A simple wrapper around GraalVM tooling that will download and locally cache a GraalVM installation and make available select parts of the GraalVM compiler for use in Gradle builds.

Local GraalVM Tooling Cache
We maintain a number of different repositories, and rather than re-download tooling and cache it per repository, this
plugin maintains a central cache in the user's home directory (
~/.gradle/caches/com.palantir.graal). Tooling artifacts
are cached by version, so multiple projects referring to different GraalVM versions will not corrupt the cache.
No locking is performed to check the atomicity of changes to the cache, so users should not expect this plugin to be well behaved when populating the cache from parallel processes.
Contributions are welcome. For larger feature requests or contributions, we prefer discussing the proposed change on a GitHub issue prior to a PR.
