custom controls in SceneBuilder

In SceneBuilder 1.0 it is not yet possible to add custom controls to
SceneBuilder's library panel. It is however possible to load an
FXML that contain custom controls. This is described in SceneBuilder's
User's Guide - see section on custom type elements there:
Note that for being able to load an FXML containing a custom element
in SceneBuilder, that custom element must be "well behaved".
1. It must not require a special Builder Factory.
2. It must have a public empty constructor.
3. If it uses an FXMLLoader to load some nested FXML file, then that
FXMLLoader must be configured to use the ClassLoader from which
the custom component was loaded
for the gory details behind this last requirement)
Don't hesitate to ping me directly for help/questions on this.
I was planning to have a look at CalendarPicker sometime soon :-)
