Its Super Crazy Nesting Nightmare Might Mean JavaFX's Death...

...unless there are tools like this:

Or is it just me? I don't see myself ever seriously using a shiny PhotoShop-like designer for working with JavaFX (although I am really looking forward to there being that kind of support). I do, however, see myself wanting to get further into JavaFX. But, with all those brackets within brackets, it's a lot like XML hell in other technologies. I reckon that only with tools like the little code generator I built, shown above, can that problem be overcome. By the way, how is everyone else doing it so far? How are you making sure all those brackets are lined up correctly? If there's interest in it (though it's not very smart, e.g., doesn't add any import statements, but simply adds the selected tag around the selected characters, without even reformatting anything), I will put it in the NetBeans Plugin Portal.
