Any plans for JavaFX 2.0 support?

I haven't noticed anything about it, so I'm wondering whether
the folks at Jetbrains are working on, perhaps, a
GUI builder that uses the (supposedly) upcoming
JavaFX 2.0.

Hello Michael,

To the best of our knowledge, JavaFX 2.0 will be simply a class library,
and as such it will not need any specific IDE support. We are not working
on a new GUI builder, and do not really plan to.

Thanks for the quick answer, Dmitry.  Yes, it's just a class library, but because it will include, from what I understand, new layout managers and such, I thought that might warrant changes to the GUI builder that's currently based around Swing.  I had heard that Oracle understands that to make Java GUI programming a viable alternative to various offerings from Adobe and Microsoft, it will have to not-only revamp the library but make sure that quality GUI builders exist as well.  I happen to much prefer IDEA's GUI builder to NetBeans'.
