Yes, that's right.

I'm thinking about adding methods to Component, say
enableMouseEventCoalescing() and disableMouseEventCoalescing().

The default would be on, and it would then be up to the app to turn
this off on specific Components.

Not sure about Component nesting - I guess the simplest thing would be
to leave it up to the app to turn this off everywhere in a nested
chain of Components, but maybe that should happen automatically.

I don't know enough about how Java passes events between Components to
really say for sure.
