In event processing terms, the only event that the Struts controller cares
about is a "page submit".  A GUI framework that intercepts any lower level
events it cares about, invisibly to the application, will be really easy
to integrate with.

When the expert group feels it's ready.  Prior to public draft, there will
be a "community review" period when everyone who is participating in the
JCP process (ans has signed a JPDA, as outlined at <http://www.jcp.org>)
gets to see and review it first.

I've got one more useful new goody on my workbench - an ActionForm
implementation that uses the new DynaBean APIs in the Commons version of
BeanUtils that let you define form beans without having to write all the
properties in individual bean classes.

After that, maybe I can get some sleep.  :-)
