Your demo applet requests unrestricted access;

I appreciate your thoughts on this. I guess I was surprised that
a demo of this sort would require unrestricted access.

I will commonly refuse permissions on trusted code
I am helping strangers with (or demos from strangers)
just to see how the sandboxed form behaves (this only
works with applets).

To get rid of the warning in a webstart app., only
requires j2ee-application-client-permissions AFAIR.

As for the PLAF. How big is the binary? ...

Indeed, the OP's archive is a hefty 5551346 bytes, much of which
appears to be Borland classes and Sun code for the entire
SwingSet2 demo.

5.5 Meg?! (The OP reports now 2.8 Meg).

Just to put that in some perspective, compare
it to the JGoodies looks 2.1.4, which provides
18 separate color schemes, each in up to three
themes, in a binary that is just over 400Kb.
