File vitality

The feedback was quick and consistent: Marking files vital by default is a good thing. So in the next weekly release of WiX, files will get the msidbFileAttributesVital attribute by default. The FilesVitalByDefault property and -fdvital switch have been removed; in their place, SuppressFilesVitalByDefault and -sfdvital turn off the default “vital” behavior.
