Include Marlin by default in bin/win/osx downloads, add to war instructions

Description

We had a foss4g code-sprint several years ago to test and write up marline install instructions. While Ian Turton mentored the volunteer trying out the software; the results never hit our documentation.

The performance improvement offered by Marlin really makes it the only-way-to-play for GeoServer. What would it take to enable it by default?

1) Bin download

  • add jar to bin download

  • adjust start.sh and start.bat scripts to include it as a boot classpath option

2) Windows service

  • as above, options added to service wrapper config

3) OSX

  • as above, options added to wrapper

4) WAR

  • have to add manual install instructions, not sure if we should include the jar or provide seperate link to marlin website. Think we would need to provide explicit step-by-step instructions in our docs (even if they got out of date).
