I don't agree that this fix should be integrated. You are allowing ordinary windows to go way above the popup, menu bar, modal window, and even the dock...you should simply use the NSNormalWIndowLevel and add single integral values to it. Otherwise you Java windows are going to be floating on top over everything else on the desktop.
The named constants are only for when you need to make some windows float just above or just below one of those named levels.
Please do not integrate this fix as is,
