Whatever you use, you are tied to the computer architecture somewhere :-)
See this as a strength, not a weakness.

For what reason ? I don't see one. Things are heavy enough, trying to make
them more is not a winning solution and worse, brings additional confusion
to your users as they have to accommodate to another UI "philosophy".
Stacking layers may be nice approach but this has a cost unfortunately and
in a managed world it can be huge.

Beyond code duplication considerations, this would lead to a precise
defect of Swing : too slow, too heavy. :-/
