JComboBox needs an Accessibility API method or AccessibleState that reveals
whether the popup menu is visible, similar to the isPopupVisible method.
Currently there is no way to tell, using Accessibility, what the state of the
popup is.

The AccessibleStateSet for a visible, showing JComboBox currently is "enabled,
visible, showing, opaque." As a fix, a combo box could include the "expandable"
state, and use "expanded" if the popup is showing and "collapsed" if not. Or a
new "Popupable" state could be added to the possible AccessibleStates.
