Provides user interface objects that combine two or more look and feels.
When a component asks
for its UI, this look and feel returns a
multiplexing UI that handles all communications with both the
default look and feel and one or more auxiliary look and feels.
For example, if
a user combines an auxiliary audio look and feel
with the Motif look and feel,
the <code>JButton.getUI</code> method
would return an instance of <code>MultiButtonUI</code>,
which would handle both a
<code>MotifButtonUI</code> and an <code>AudioButtonUI</code>.

the Multiplexing Look and Feel.</a>
