Or, the peer could implement the Adjustable objects itself, and provide
getHAdjustable/getVAdjustable methods that the component can use when it
needs to access them.

Or maybe its all just calculated internally by the component (this seems
pretty likely actually, and it means less work to do when we want to port
the peers to different toolkits)
