The problem is that then there 2 toolkits attached to the same event
loop. IIRC when you embed JavaFX in SWT, SWT has to be the one started
first which is not the case if you are launching an e4-fx application
where JavaFX comes first!

This is dead simple even to implement yourself but nothing we should
bother this list with because it is JavaFX/e(fx)clipse related.
