Cool!  I got a Frame to show, but neither events nor painting works...

Yes!  However, I can't promise how quick I will be able to follow your
progress. Still, here is my personal immodest ordered wishlist :-)

  Frame (Window, Container, Component)
   Events and EventListener
    Panel with Flow- Grid- Border- GridBag-Layout
     Button, Label 
      Canvas (basically paint(), update(), possibly getGraphics() - 
              this would allow me to test most of my custom components).
       TextComponent, TextField, TextArea
         Dialog, FileDialog
