to me, it looks like a lot of work.
But it is not directly related to SWT. It is about implementing this 
RMI, reflection information and code generation.
Interesting questions are virtual function calls, GC, synchronisation, 
If that all works, it could be used with every library.

What i don't understand is.. why?
Do you want the remote thing? Or do you see this as another - perhaps 
more easy - way of porting SWT?
