Accessing JavaFX' StageHelper and ContextMenuContent in Jigsaw

The StageHelper class is deliberately not exposed for good reasons, 
since it's purpose is to provide internal access to non-public state.

We moved most of the skin classes to a publicly exported package as part of JEP 253, but that didn't 
include ContextMenuContent.

Can you explain what you are trying to do with these classes? Perhaps 
there is an alternative? If this is a detailed JavaFX question, then I 
suggest asking it on openjfx-dev rather than jigsaw-dev.
