Hmm, sounds great! Does that mean that theres a basis on which somebody
can work on?
It doesnt matter how functional it is now, only if it is clean and

Hmmm, I thought about that.
I dont want to like playing around with making AWT better, >I'm not a
good coder, and that lowlevel-stuff is not enough funny for me...
I hope very much that in near future more people will work on
awt-support in gcj, it is really bad at now.
How good is AWT now? Are there still some essential parts missing?
Would it be better to use JDK1.1.8 and extend it. But that would maybe
make it incompatible with classpath...

Thanks for answering my question!
