Thanks Oleg, I really like scepticism :-)

Eh, I was not aware there was something like AWT LaF. I thought AWT just
uses whatever the backend uses (Motif, Win32, or in the case of GNU
Classpath, GTK or Qt). Having the same LaF for Swing and AWT should be
good IMO. But if not, it should be possible to install a special UI
class on the backing Swing components...

Surely I am. Regarding the JCK - yeah funny. Give me access to it, and
I'll do it :-)

I can solve the first two points (compatibility and LaF) but not the
last one :-)
Thanks for giving me some perspective.
