I'm not sure, honestly. Maybe we should talk sometime on skype. It's
possible we're both duplicating each other's work.

For example, have you come up with neat solutions for any of the following:

1. Issues like Non-accessible code in the NetBeans platform?

2. How do you deal with virtual machine implementations that don't
properly route events through Java, for example, the menus on Mac OS

3. How do you deal with components that popup, but do not actually
fire events, like code completion windows or editor hints?

I'm just curious, as any potential for collaboration is a good thing,
