In general this is what's need to be done:

* Port snippets and make sure existing ones work
* Port later versions of SWT
* Port to 64bit
* Port the SWT test suite
* In general finding and fixing bugs

It's a manual port. We tried to use a tool at one point but it didn't 
work very well. To much of the Java API needed to be ported.
