Then I try with JFace first, would be quite a lot to learn if I tried to 
port the osx version.

I haven't looked at your source code yet so what is it to think about 
when I do the port, how should I port the data types. I read that you 
use char[] instead of String, what about boolean? The previous DWT used 
boolean as an alias to int, is there anything else?
