As to the PLAF. I give it some minor 'cute'
points from the screenshots, but at the better
part of 5.7 Meg to download, I reckon it's
'worth it 1/10 the download'.

If you are serious about getting people to
use it, reduce the size dramatically, and offer
it as varying levels of permission (sand-boxed &
j2ee-application-client-permissions should do it)
as webstart extensions.

BTW - I just suffered through the download &
refused the digitally signed code (I don't know
you from Adam - I do not trust you to run
privileged code on my machine), to see.. access denied
(java.lang.RuntimePermission accessClassInPackage.sun.swing)

Does that mean your code will only work with
full permissions? If so, that is very unfortunate.
I would not consider using a PLAF that was unable
to work in a sandbox.
