(1) In the next version, we moved (subclassed) events over to java.awt, i.e.
we don't rely on the "trojan horse" AWTEvent anymore

(2) For the current version - if AWTEvent has a protected dispatch(), and this
is called from inside java.awt (on AWTEvent instances), I can't see why this
should give the compiler a problem.

(3) This doesn't work just with pizza - javac compiles it, too.
