Here I would prefer to have a choice that the loader accepts "this" as 
an instance of PersonView and then wires up the firstNameField etc

instance, requiring me to lookup everything again. In this way the fxml 
loader really just replaces manual control creation with fxml specified

the current framework (with 2.1):
