SwingX: JXScrollMap

I mentioned during my BOF at JavaOne a new component that is close to ready for moving into SwingX: JXScrollMap. Part of the way that SwingX works is that members first join the incubator project. Members contribute ideas to the incubator, flesh them out, and eventually bring them into SwingX. The incubator contains lots of stuff from really mature ideas to things that aren't. Some of the ideas have moved into SwingX, but a number of good ideas still reside there. As SwingX was preparing for version 1.0, we placed a ban on any component additions, as we needed to concentrate on the issues at hand. The first goal post-1.0 was to remove SwingX sorting and filtering migrating JXTable and JXList to core sorting and filtering. During this time we also identified a few components that we thought might make good additions to SwingX proper. One such component was the ScrollPaneSelector. ScrollPaneSelector is a popup that displays a mini-map of the viewport contents. Users move the viewport rectangle on the mini-map to place the viewport rectangle in the scroll pane. ScrollPaneSelector was definitely an idea that we liked. Recently, I took the ScrollPaneSelector code and made a clean up pass. I separated the control logic into the UI delegate, fine-tuned the API, and renamed it. Without further ado, I'd like to present JXScrollMap. Neither the name nor the API are finalized, as the component is still in the incubator, so any feedb...
