Thanks Johan! Looks like Gluon is the Trolltech equivalent I just wished
for - that was fast :-)

>From your blog post, it sounds like you're planning to fork SB or at least
maintain a patch set on top of it. So I guess you have reason to believe SB
upstream is a dead project at this point?

If you let me know when you have a public repository, I'll take a look at
contributing an integration of UpdateFX and CrashFX. Users would still need
to re-download the app to upgrade the JVM across major releases but other
changes could be pushed easily to all users in the background.

I'm also interested in making it more keyboardable, in particular shortcuts
for wrapping/unwrapping would be useful and ability to insert controls
based on an auto complete of the name.
