Come on Fabio..... SWT..... I think you
are failing to realize the state of the world in UI toolkit, JVM
performance, hardware performance back in 1999/2000....
If you and the many others who think that could have done better
back then, then it is time to show the world your awesomeness and
fix up Eclipse to help it regain its shine from the early days.
Meanwhile, I'll be watching your code quality :)

(yes, I think that it's unfortunate that the creation of SWT
was done in the first place, as besides making an IDE Eclipse
development also has to support a UI Widget toolkit, but
history is history, we should look forward here, and
currently, fixing the remaining issues -- namely: table
headers, buttons and themed scrollbars -- at least on windows
-- is probably less work than changing to another direction --
although making those fixes in SWT is an uphill battle because
they're not native on the platform, so, even with a working
patch, it's probably really hard to get accepted in SWT).
