I think there are two usages of builders:
- construct compontents / controls programatically (ending in the build() call).
- mapping of FXML attributes to node properties, because in FXML everything 
must be a string.

For example, CalendarTextField has no builder class in the first sense (I used 
withers for that), but does have a class that converts the dateFormats (list of 
SimpleDateFormat strings) in an fxml file to an actual list of DateFormats 


If you can explain to me how to do this without a builder, but also without 
polluting CalendarTextField with FXML aspects, then I'll change the code.

When Scene Builder 2.0 found a custom components, it instantiates it using

builder factory.

Since builders are deprecated, I'm not sure it make sense for SB to have 
dependency on them.

I had no problems adding the JFXtras components to SceneBuilder, but one of the controls 
has a custom FXML builder. It is present in the same jar, but how do I tell SceneBuilder 
to use it? Now when I try to load an fxml file an exception ("unable to 
coerse") is shown by SceneBuilder.
