My experience with piccolo2d-swt has been only enough to get the
examples working. The basic building blocks are there, but note that
the swt package is more of a parallel implementation, not an
extension. For example PSWTText extends PNode but not PText.
There is an open issue with patches to SWT that unfortunately I have
been slow to apply
Provide advanced graphical options under SWT
and another SWT issue that no one has been able to look at yet
PSWTText not respecting bounds.x and bounds.y in painting

I don't know if this would be possible.
