/**
 * A non-visual builder that assists you in building consistent button stacks
 * using the {@link FormLayout}.<p>
 *
 * This builder sets a hint for narrow  margin for the gridded buttons.
 * This can reduce the button stack's width if some buttons have long texts.
 * For example, a stack with 'OK', 'Cancel', 'Configure...' will likely
 * exceed the minimum button width. The narrow margins help getting narrow
 * stacks.
 * Note that some look&amp;feels do not support the narrow margin feature,
 * and conversely, others have only narrow margins. The JGoodies look&amp;feels
 * honor the setting, the Mac Aqua l&amp;f uses narrow margins all the time.<p>
 * 
 * <strong>Example:</strong><br>
 * The following example builds a button stack with <i>Close, Up</i> and 
 * <i>Down</i>, where Up and Down are related, and Close is not related
 * to the other buttons, which makes a wide gap for the unrelated and 
 * a smaller gap for the related buttons.
 * <pre>
 * private JPanel createCloseUpDownButtonStack(
 *         JButton close, JButton up, JButton down) {
 *     ButtonStackBuilder builder = new ButtonStackBuilder();
 *     builder.addGridded(close);
 *     builder.addUnrelatedGap();
 *     builder.addGridded(up);
 *     builder.addRelatedGap();
 *     builder.addGridded(down);
 *     return builder.getPanel();
 * }
