swt-gtk 3.1-2 is all ready to move into testing [1], but it's being
held back by swingwt, which it make "uninstallable on arm". swingwt is
a library that, so far, no other packages use. To me, getting swt-gtk
into testing is far more important waiting for swingwt to get sorted.
swingwt has a couple issues that may take a while, such as a GCJ
internal compiler error on HPPA. Can swt-gtk 3.1-2 be pushed into
