Free AWT and Free Swing

Seems Free Swing was just the start. Graydon Hoare, Olga Rodimina, Kim Ho, Andrew Overholt, David Jee, Thomas Fitzsimmons and Fernando Nasser decided they could do much more and much faster. So they created a branch for libgcj to really concentrate on hacking Free AWT and Swing stuff. They already have JButton, JSlider and nearly JList working.
Graydon his 2D AWT stuff looks beautiful. Combine this all with the javax.swing.border and javax.swing.undo frameworks that Sascha Brawer just completed (including a huge testsuite!) and we are really cooking. Awesome!
