Ramon, 

Based on what I see in the license in the distribution, you can freely 
modify the code as long as you provide the license disclaimer.
I have run into a number of problems with Piccolo2D as well and am willing 
to help you in your forking effort. My research group has a number of needs 
that are not being met by the current code base. ZVTM is another zoomable 
library, but is too far off the Java standard way for me to be too 
interested in adapting it. Piccolo just needs a little modernizing love.

Let me know if you are interested and we'll start to figure out the details.

Jeff
