Improve startup time of RSSOwl by using latest Java 1.6 Update 10

Sun has just released the Update 10 of Java 1.6. Among other changes, this release comes with the Java Quick Starter included. According to Sun, this features improves the cold startup time of Java applications (e.g. after a system boot).

I gave it a try and was able to speed up the startup time by 30%. Note that the quick starter is not running in case your notebook is running on battery power. Also note that as far as I know, this service is only provided on Windows XP.
