And then you'd have a Swing model that binds the MutableString into the GUI
See I've already coded this.

Now, I reckon Joda might do with a little simplification, but the basic
stuff is there.
StringProperty == MutableString
IntegerProperty == MutableInteger
Swing GUI models written for the basics, text, radio buttons etc.

However, I think that the full implications of this are much greater than
[lang] should be dealing with.
