If you're really not interested going further with this I have an easy
solution. I can hack up something in private (I am going to do this
anyway so that I can support the various alternative AWT peer
implementations that we already have in place), upload the patches to
some public location (to conform with the GPL) and be happy with it. I
feel that doing this together with you would be a better solution (less
maintenance for me and a better architectured AWT for you) but I don't
need to do this if you don't feel like it's a good idea.
