I do like the DWT naming, org.eclipse is not very appealing, but 
ultimately it is still eclipse's SWT.

I think a question would be, how much work would it take to revert back 
to swt stuff (guessing not much with automation). I think going back to 
the original will likely help in its evolution, which says to me "good."
