As I get very close to a toolkit that can work correctly with most features
(I implemented almost all AWT peers classes already), I prefer to go on a
little further before anything public.
At this time, I plan to put it on my website under GNU GPL license, but I'm
opened to any idea about the best place and the best license.

One thing that is nice for you porters, is that this toolkit may be useful
to get Java 6 or 7 on other platforms where SWT is available.

BTW, I noticed that System.getProperty("os.name") returns "Darwin" and not
"Mac OS X" in SoyLatte. It's not a very good idea if people want to port
their program to SoyLatte.

Let's keep in touch !
