Absolutely. It's not like the code doesn't exist or cannot be worked on
only because it's not in JavaFX ;-) If the right place for this is not
open yet (because it references Java2D and AWT/Swing) then let's wait.
I'd be happy if you take a look anyway, maybe you can find something
cool to improve in the meantime. Also, if the Canvas2D becomes
available, let us know :-)

Cheers, Roman
