I do. :-)
My implementation of GeneralPath (together with the contains() and
intersects() methods for curves) is all finished, but I've been
waiting for the FSF paperwork to get done. (I don't know what they're
up to, I gave them a polite ping a few days ago to see what's up..)

I've been doing some work on Area as well, which is indeed a rather
tricky class. Currently it works for line-segment polygons, and I've
also written the curve-curve-intersection code (perhaps the
trickiest part) All in all it's a real monster of a class. 

So, avoiding a duplication of effort here would be a good idea.
