Reloading stylesheets

Got it. The key was to move the stylesheets from the root node to the 
scene before reloading them:


The hotkey also works now: shift+ctrl+7 reloads CSS while the scene is 
visible. This works by using a custom scene, overriding 
impl_processKeyEvent. Even better would be automatic change-detection 
(in debug mode only) but I don't have time to do this now. Previously 
you said that reloading is not needed on FX8... does this work out of 
the box then?
