Yeah, I was about to prepare a webrev before getting asleep yesterday :)

I think it's a control, after all is supposed to be used to show Swing widgets :)

Btw, is there any reason why the code is GPL only and not LGPL or GPL plus Classpath as the JDK?

It seems weird for me since is a library (we did the same "mistakes" for ThinkgsFX btw).
