javax.swing.ActionEvent.getActionCommand() appears to be necessary to tell which of the Cancel or Open/Save buttons the user pressed in a JFileChooser.

Without this method (or a specialized sugaring on JFileChooser) I can't see any way to correctly use JFileChooser.

(In particular, note that the caplet powerbox --

-- fails to make the distinction, which is a dangerous bug: the selected file, if any, will be granted to the caplet even though the user intended to cancel.)
