Calendar / DatePicker control

Hi Christian,

It looks like you've put a heap of effort into this calendar picker - it 
looks very nice (and I especially like your use of CSS and animation).

As I said in the post you refer to, there are at least four calendar 
pickers I know of, and your one takes that to five! :-)

As you know, a calendar / date picker control is missing from JavaFX, 
and it is something that I would love to see included as soon as 
possible. This control could also be an excellent community contribution 
via OpenJFX. I have been suggesting to all date picker controls 
developers to move their code to JFXtras, and to work with the other 
developers on creating a single control that features the best features 
of all of them.

Of course, I know this isn't as fun as just writing and owning your own 
control, so feel free to do that if you want. My suggestion is to those 
that are keen to see their date picker possibly appear in OpenJFX.

If you were to move in to JFXtras and merge your work with the other 
developers, I would recommend basing the foundation on Toms 
CalendarPickerX [1], as it is built using the full Control API that a 
JavaFX control should use if it were to be made public.
