Add a command-line wrapper script to macOS bundle, linux and Windows installations (bash, powershell and .bat wrappers)

      Description

      There is no great way to launch Jalview from the command line in macOS with the (highly recommended) DMG installer application.

      The closest equivalent would be

      open -a /Applications/Jalview.app --args "$@"

      or to open a FILE (or URL)

      open -a /Applications/Jalview.app FILE

      This is not ideal as getdown gets launched which may provoke an automatic update and certainly a splashscreen even if -headless has been specified (which is more likely for a CLI).

      A suitable wrapper script should go into Jalview.app/Contents/MacOS (which is where it should go).
