Mixsing 2D and 3D: Java does the trick!

Hi again,

some time ago there was a discussion about how 2d-only apis limit
programmers and that new apis should be prepared for mixed 2d and 3d
use and so on ;-)
Althought I do not think that the introduction of a new 2d-only api is
deprecated, I think it could be quite cool to mix and match a bit.

Since Java-6.0 b51 (Mustang dev builds) its possible to mix Java2d (a
powerful 2d graphics library) with  OpenGL if Java2d is used with its
opengl backend.
