Why are the classes not useable ... ?

So you propose that the these new packages will be generated from the
classpath release?

The first two are just APIs (am I right?), and the second one is all the
swing code.

I didn't think that classpath had anything close to a complete swing
implementation. Do you just want the swing classes to be able to compile
other packages against the swing api?

I don't think we need a vote, if anyone has objections or better
suggestions I'm sure they will tell us.
