Need SWT Fans/Volunteers

I'm planning on putting an SWT section into the GUI chapter of Thinking in Java 4th edition. I've begun learning about SWT (I like it), but I realized that I might be able to get help from the SWT fan base on this. The goal would be to translate the Swing examples to SWT, so that people would be able to compare and contrast the two approaches (I won't have space for all the examples, but I'd like to see what they look like first so I can choose the most interesting/compelling ones). If you're interested in volunteering for this, email me at Bruce@EckelObjects.com. I suspect there will be several folks interested in this so we'll try to coordinate and prevent duplicate efforts, and post the results via a wiki and/or a weblog.
