I think Kaffe has an AWT that has some xlib peers already.  GCJ
contains some xlib peers for Classpath's AWT.  Someone was recently
working to get the Kaffe xlib peers and all the Kaffe AWT code working
under GCJ.

The variations on AWT and Java2d are starting to require a huge
matrix.  It would be nice to standardize a peer interface.
