The estimated time is however long it takes somebody to write it,
debug it, and submit it.

That said, I don't see Swing happening in the foreseeable future, at
least not anything more than a very small subset.  The priority is
to get AWT working, and in general complete the JDK 1.1 functionality.
We have lots of Java 2 functionality, but there is no hope anytime
soon of having *all* of the JDK 1.2 functionality.  However, all
of JDK 1.1 is relatively close.  But as long as we're depending on
volunteers, we cannot make any estimates.
