Allow installer to expire on specified date

Description

Some installers – such as those for alpha, beta, or test versions of a product – need to expire to prevent use after a given date. While the installed program can (and should) time out, it would be frustrating and bad form to let a user install an expired program.

This can be implemented as an optional variable:

<variables>
...
<!-- Make the installer expire -->
<variable name="InstallerExpiresDate" value="2016-01-01" />
...
</variables>
