Just couldn’t wait, so I cobbled a working solution together. Essentially, you need to 

1. download the Linux-64 distribution:

	(See for explanation.)

2. download and install a very recent Java 8 EA release (I have b_112 installed, perhaps there’s something more recent)

3. copy /Applications/Scene Builder, rename the copy Scene Builder

4. Delete the contents of the “Contents/Java” of this new copy.

5. Copy the contents of the “App” folder in the Linux distribution into “Contents/Java”.

6. Replace the “Plugins/jdk1.7.0_40.jdk” with a copy of “jdk1.8.0.jdk” from your /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0.jdk.

7. Launch use “Jar Launcher (14.9.0)” the file “SceneBuilderApp.jar” in “Contents/Java”.

It works for me, and looks pretty darned good. Can’t wait for the real thing. 

(I posted essentially the same thing on the JFXexperience page, and made a good hash of it. @Jonathan Giles: you can clean my comments up if you want to.)
