That sounds very useful--is there one?

IIRC current Java GUI-automation tools (see

http://www.superlinksoftware.com/cgi-bin/jugwiki.pl?TestingGUIs

) work either by

a stuffing events in java.awt.EventQueue

or

b wrapping j.a.Robot

so the interface you describe could probably best serve SWT developers
if it was API-compatible with j.a.EventQueue--then we could presumably
just "plug it into" existing tooling.
