Now that abcl has a mop implementation, a port is theoretically possible.  In fact, porting the existing X-Windows backend should not be too much work.  I started noodling around with a Swing-based backend, but did not progress beyond an application frame with vertically stacked labels so far.  Current progress is at https://github.com/rudi/mcclim/tree/abcl-backend; I'm not working actively on it currently but it can serve as the basis for a port of the X-Windows backend since the abcl-specific files are there.
