There are two main components: the GTK+ peers and the main 1.1 AWT.  The
peers were written by Paul Fisher and where orginally designed to work
under the JDK, so I believe he was at least able to test that they
basically worked.  The main java.awt.* classes were mostly written by
me.  I banged them in as fast as I could and only debugged them to the
point on compilation.  I've actually never gotten more than blank
frame to appear on the screen.  Some others have gotten a bit further.
Regardless, this code is very raw.  I suspended work on it because of
the merger and licensing issues.  Now would be a very good time for
people to pick things back up.
