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.
