Embedding JavaFX in SWT on Linux (Gtk3)

Starting with Eclipse Luna (released in end of June) the default mode of
SWT on Linux is to make use of Gtk3.

As far as I understand the situation Glass on Linux is linked against
Gtk2 so JavaFX components that need glass (=fairly everything beside
javafx-properties) will fail to load - in fact i got reports that the
JVM crashes.

IIRC i read that monocole has a port that directly uses X11 would it be
a work-around to run with this port when running in swt-embedding?

Am I right that the webkit binaries are also linked against gtk2 or do I
remember this wrong?
