Chance of Backporting Gtk3 Support to JavaFX 8

Eclipse SWT developers are about to remove Gtk2-SWT port once they start
developing towards support for Gtk4.

This means there's no SWT-FX-Integration layer anymore for JavaFX8
because it is linked to Gtk2.

I know JavaFX-8 is not the new and shining thing because everyone wants
to use modules and Java 11 but there are many applications who can not
easily to Java 9+.

Is there any chance the Gtk3 changes from JavaFX-9 get backported to
