I have updated FXMLLoader to prioritize a handler method that takes an event argument over a handler with no arguments.

Does anyone have any additional feedback on this item?

> In JavaFX 2.0, controller-based event handlers must adhere to the method signature defined by an event handler; in other words, they must accept a single argument of a type that extends Event and return void. This change lifts the argument restriction, making it possible to write a controller event handler that takes no arguments.
