I agree, Ty: it's a terrible idea, and in my experience makes JavaFX
unworkable for games. There is no way to change native screen resolution, I
have to go to command line to achieve this and use a C++ solution. It's one
of my major gripes, along with no shader access. Ref: performance, I've
found the canvas, currently the fastest way to render content, to be slow
against pure native OpenGL/Vulcan/Dx solutions.
