[wix-users] Avoid Bundle Resume After Reboot

Embedded mode looks cool.

A quick skim of the source code shows that it doesn't transfer responsibility for logging, but does suppress the restart registration.

It does require the named pipe be connected, etc., though, especially because the named pipe is created by the agent.

Is the named pipe connection required? Or could the agent pass the bundle
the required data and simply not connect to the named pipe and wait until
the bundle completes? Is logging still managed by the bundle OR has the
agent now taken responsibility for any logging?
