Custom InputControl w/o char->string conversion

I'll hope this is the right place to ask. I'm currently evaluating
multiple ways to write a cross platform application with the requirement
to be able to clear certain inputs from memory rather quickly and not
wait for the GCs mercy.
I've tracked the JavaFx TextInputControls back to the point where the
character from the input event is transformed into a string. Which
happens roughly in com.sun.javafx.tk.quantum.GlassViewEventHandler.
My questions results in, if it would be possible to write a custom
control (or some other way) which would leave at least no traces in the
string pool? Right now I've not enough knowledge about JavaFX internals,
but it seems like this event handling is implemented way down the rabbit
hole and it looks like a major afford to avoid the char->string conversion?
I would be happy about any pointers where to look/start, or if a project
like this would be doomed from the start =).
