What are the loader and loader installer package in the LunarG Vulkan SDK?

Loader: Consistent loader behavior across platforms is key to Vulkan. The Khronos-­branded loader binary and installation package is included in the LunarG Vulkan SDK. The loader discovers and manages the Vulkan devices/drivers and layers available to the application.

Loader installer package: The SDK also includes an installation package for the loader binary, for those who want to use the installation package directly for installing a Vulkan loader on a system.
