Any ideas for a "scene builder" control?

Hi John,

I understand you are suggesting to implement the SelectionPane only, and that would have to be placed into a 
stackpane on top of some container whose controls are supposed to be selected/moved/etc.

Seems to do the trick as well. I don't really like that users would have to add the StackPane around it manually.
On the other hand, it could also be seen as an advantage: add the SelectionPane only when needed, remove it
when the controls are no longer moved around but should become functional (text input etc).

At this point I am not sure which one is the best option but the SelectionPane code is identical for the most part
anyway, so I can change my mind later. And thanks for the Layout Bounds demo - this will come in very handy.
