Hi Nick,

Small question:  I was just curious as to what ScoreCanvasSwingJPanel  
does, and as to the difference between it and ScoreCanvasSwing.  I'm  
using ActionMap and InputMap to handle input events so it's important  
to have the reference to the Swing component.  The code below works,  
but it feels a bit weird.

I can't get ScoreCanvasSwingJPanel to work in the same way that  
ScoreCanvasSwing does (using score.setCanvas(canvas)). Is there  
something I'm missing?

		JFrame frame = new JFrame();

		JPanel panel = (JPanel) score.getScoreCanvas().getComponent();

		Action doNothing = new AbstractAction() {
			public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
				System.out.println("Foo.  Bar.  Etc.");

		panel.getInputMap().put(KeyStroke.getKeyStroke("1"), "doSomething");
		panel.getActionMap().put("doSomething", doNothing);


		frame.addWindowStateListener(new WindowAdapter() {
			public void windowClosed(WindowEvent e) {
