Okay.  Next question… should there be a public API for this?  I realize that most applications shouldn't care about it, but tech support people might.  If a customer complains that my app is flickering, or slow, etc. and I can grab this information and see that hardware acceleration is not enabled for some reason, that would be helpful.
Presumably someone at Oracle agrees because I doubt the Scene Builder devs put it there just for fun :-)
