> I'm not too sure on how the builder is hooked into the FXML but I would have assumed reflection too. I would have thought the tools could just inspect the builder class to find methods on it but if not perhaps there is a need to allow builders to declare their meta data (eg annotations, javadoc tags or XML).

The builders are constructed through JavaFXBuilderFactory and all the
FXML stuff is already in the mercurial repo.
