I personally find the way Android does this overly complex.

And it's much simpler for them, because they don't use a scene graph,
but only the old way of defining widgets and containers.

AFAIK, their framework does not help at all when using absolute
positioning (AbsoluteLayout on Android), and in that case the
developer must do everything by himself, which is really a pain.

But if they can have this limitation because they only have regular
widgets, it's not possible when using a scene graph and mixing graphic
shapes with widgets like in JavaFX.
