Correct me if I've misunderstood what's going on here, but all of the
java.awt.* `widget' classes work by calling methods of the peer which
they create (using `getToolkit().createFoo(this)') in their
addNotify() method.

How can a Toolkit be implemented without providing classes which
implement the Peer interfaces?
