Hi Tom,

This is an experimental SWT implementation of Glass that is used for 
debugging, benchmarking etc. purposes.  It's unlikely that we will ever 
ship it as part of FX.  You are right that it can't be part of jfxrt.jar 
and should it ever become more than that, it would need to be in a 
separate jar, perhaps part of swtfx.jar.
