Because the java files are named like that:

I don't know, maybe. There will always be things that the script can't 
automatically translate. But you are free to create a script and if it's 
good enough it can be added to the dwt repository.

Yes, all browser related code have only been ported for linux. I have no 
idea if it still works or not. If I recall correctly it didn't work very 
well when I tried it last time.
