Monocle in 8u25

I've put the Monocle sources directly in my code directories for
testing purposes. Putting it into a separate Jar is possible and I
thought that pre-compiled jars could be provided via Maven.
I didn't do a complete OpenJFX build, because I was only interested in
the Headless component of Monocle, i.e. I didn't needed the
platform-dependent dynamic libraries.
Rough instructions were given in a previous mail. There were some
request to provide the pre-compoile jars so I will additionally set up
a public repository with detailed instructions when I'm back home.
