Public way to monitor JavaFX Windows

TestFX uses `javafx.stage.Window.impl_getWindows()` to search nodes
for user input simulation and state verification. I haven't spotted a
public way to retrieve or even monitor windows or stages. Also:
Searching for nodes within all windows simplifies tests for open popup
window drastically in comparision to e.g. the FEST-Swing test
