JarClassLoader support for JARs within JARs

The JarClassLoader currently has support for the Class-Path attribute in the manifest file which makes it possible to reference classes in other JAR files. Installation can be a bit messy since it usually requires copying of multiple JAR files into various subdirectories.

It would be nice if the extra JAR files could be stored inside the main JAR file (eg. in META-INF/lib). This would make installation and handling a lot easier.

This ticket is an independent part of #1592.

My idea is that the JARs inside should be copied to the userfiles directory since the web server already has permission to write to that directory.
