sbt: the launcher

An alternative script for running sbt. It works with sbt 0.7.x projects as well as 0.10+. If you're in an sbt project directory, the runner will figure out the versions of sbt and scala required by the project and download them if necessary.

Sample usage: create a new project using a snapshot version of sbt as well as a snapshot version of scala, then run the sbt "about" command.

% sbt -v -sbt-snapshot -210 -sbt-create about
Detected sbt version 0.11.3-SNAPSHOT
sbt snapshot is 0.11.3-20111207-052114
