I'm not sure what you are replying to since I don't appear to have
any emails in this thread so I am guessing its something about
Apple EOL'ing their JDK 6 and the need to bundle a JRE in future.

I don't see how using JavaFX makes that any different (better or worse),
since I'd be pretty sure that Scott bundled a JRE runtime to run Ensemble.
Its a 61Mb download :-). [But  large app store downloads are not that
