Why the interface BackgroundPaintable has the package visibility? I really want to know why, because I would like to use it...
The interface exists to ensure that SwingX code provide duck-typing similar to core duck-typing. Consistant APIs for disparate components.
What's the use-case for making this interface public?
No answer?! :'(
If it's not documented nor has a task issue in the tracker, you'll have to wait for Karl - he's who added that part.
Why have this interface public? Well, I have a function "blur" which take in parameter a JXPanel, and blur it but I want to do the same for all components (JXButton, JXLabel, etc...) having the method setBackgroundPainter, it means implementing BackgroundPaintable.
