Minor Usability improvement

Hi, sorry if this is not the place to put this I think it is... This are two minor improvements... handle ESCAPE key and make the ok button the default button...maybe you dont need this code but I put it any way if it can help you...

//in the jdialog constructor

//Handle escape key to close the dialog
KeyStroke escape =
KeyStroke.getKeyStroke(KeyEvent.VK_ESCAPE, 0, false);
Action escapeAction = new AbstractAction() {
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
dispose();
}
};

getRootPane().getInputMap(JComponent.WHEN_IN_FOCUSED_WINDOW).put(escape,
"ESCAPE");
getRootPane().getActionMap().put("ESCAPE",
escapeAction);

//to make the default button ...
this.getRootPane().setDefaultButton(defaultBtn);

... I was looking and there are a lot of other things that can be improved in details like this... If you think this is important and need a hand with some swing code I'm interested in participate in an open source project in my free time...
