I think what was intended was that you write your Swing code against
Sun's AWT in the JDK.  The Classpath AWT does not work currently and probably
lacks many features needed for a proper Swing implementation.  If you are
able to write a functional drop in replacement for Swing using the JDK,
it should automatically work with Classpath once our own base AWT is complete.
