Daniel, Christian --

There seems to be a strong use for Monocle in the case of doing headless
testing. I am currently using TestFX, and testing on Jenkins requires
having a remote desktop window open to the headless Windows Jenkins slave.

I had started to explore using Monocle with an earlier build of 8u20 and a
tweaked version of TestFX, and it was very encouraging. Without it, I have
a serious hole in my testing strategy.
