Allow for multi-stage boot features installation

                 Key: KARAF-608
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-608
             Project: Karaf
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 2.2.0, 2.1.5
            Reporter: Gert Vanthienen
             Fix For: 2.1.6, 2.2.2, 3.0.0

Currently, all boot features specified are installed in a single go: all the bundles get installed,
resolved and then afterwards get started.  This works fine for most features, but there are
a few scenarios where it would be nice to allow installing the boot features in a few independent

One example is ServiceMix' use of OBR in the features.  You can install OBR support through
a feature, but it needs to be installed before resolving the other features to allow the Features'
OBR Resolver support to kick in.  We have now worked around this in ServiceMix by adding the
OBR feature's bundle to the startup.properties file, but it would be nice to have a simpler
Another example is a feature that include a war: url for adding web applications.  That requires
the war feature to be installed and started before attempting the installation of the web
application feature.

We could e.g. allow adding parentheses to group parts of the boot features that need to be
installed in a single batch.  Something like (obr,war),activemq,cxf,camel,jbi could install
the 'war' and 'obr' feature in a first batch and the do the rest as usual.
