It would be nice to have a way to use the GUI to 
select the LnF. Perhaps Chrises options 
proposal covers this. 

Folks on the mailing lists seem interested in 
trying out various skins. Someone recently 
posted that they were going to create a 
module that would allow them to 
specify LnF at runtime for a product 
using the NetBeans platform. Would be nice
to have something like that for the IDE 
as well.

I know there were an attempts to do it, I am not sure what was the result ...

For IDE, we settled on strictly following L&F which imitates "native" feeling, no selection of L&Fs from GUI, sorry.

But for NB platform, it makes good sense to add option for L&F policy ("native" x "cros platform" x 3rd party)
