Embedding DWT

Threading issues have been resolved. Basically we needed to create a shell 
that parented an HWND we were provided. We tried using display.syncExec 
which worked until we attempted the Shell.win32_new ... apparantly you can't 
create a window that parents an HWND from a different thread. So instead, in 
the syncExec, we create a new normal shell, create an OleFrame that parents 
the shell. After the syncExec, we now have a shell object with a bogus hwnd. 
So what we do is a simple Windows function call:   SetParent(shell.handle, 
hwndParent). voila, problem solved. DWT is making me happy again
