OK, I'm not actually thinking BXML should be abandoned.  There are many type
of user and usage scenario which would fit BXML approach.
But these approach is static, it is not good fit for creating more dynamic
library for GUI(for instance the number of table columns are changed based
on passed parameter class).
Since you put low priority for supporting readable Java code generation, I
thought you may not be interested in this type of approach.
