Glimmer 0.5.7 Package Signing/Naming + Singleton Class Support

Glimmer 0.5.7 desktop development library for Ruby ships with a few new changes:
- Adding `include Glimmer` to your Glimmer application class now makes it available to the singleton class too (aka eigenclass). This is useful in case you declare colors in class-level constants
- `rake glimmer:package` can now be configured with extra args via `Glimmer::Package.javapackager_extra_args="..."` making it easy to pass package signing options like `-Bmac.signing-key-developer-id-app="CertificateName"`
- Self-Signed Certificate instructions have been added to README should that be needed.
The Math Bowling game built with Glimmer takes advantage of these changes in its new version 1.0 release.

Happy Glimmering!
