+1, I’d love to see enough support in SceneBuilder that any 3rd party layout 
container could supply editor support, so that the SceneBuilder team doesn’t 
have to hard code support for different layout containers. This was one of the 
goals of the “Design Time API for Java Beans” JSR (273, or 277? I don’t 
remember) to do the same for Swing. We haven’t got that far with Scene Builder 
but I think the idea is great. MigLayout is widely used enough that we could 
just add hard-coded support for it (maybe you or another person could 
contribute that?). Ideally it would be something any 3rd party layout vendor 
could provide — but in practice there are not that many widely used 3rd party 
layouts — even in the Swing world.

Sure, if I can get some help getting started. (Aka if somebody tells me which 
class needs implementing and -reading that one post- how to build SceneBuilder, 
I'll bring the MigPane knowledge to the party.)
