Hey this is great stuff, I'm definitely eager to get our first OS contributions and work through the process. There are some things around testing & QA we will have to work through (any public API will need QA testing and such, which requires coordination and buy-in from that team). However I think there is no theoretical problem with putting this code in some form into javafx.embed.swing.

Artem is the guy who owns this portion of the code, so either he or one of the Swing / AWT guys will probably be the primary point of contact for code reviews.

I'll take a look again on Monday and follow up with Jasper.
