I extended AWT a long time ago (before Swing). One big limitation was
that many AWT classes are just proxies for native components. In many
ways, they can't be extended. It's not just a matter of access level.
That was the price for the required speed and size.
I wouldn't be surprised if the DoJa UI uses native components too.
