/**
 * Provides a means to build form-oriented panels quickly and consistently
 * using the {@link FormLayout}. This builder combines frequently used
 * panel building steps: add a new row, add a label, proceed to the next 
 * data column, then add a component.<p>
 * 
 * The extra value lies in the <code>#append</code> methods that 
 * append gap rows and component rows if necessary and then add
 * the given components. They are built upon the superclass behavior 
 * <code>#appendRow</code> and the set of <code>#add</code> methods.
 * A set of component appenders allows to add a textual label and
 * associated component in a single step.<p>
 * 
 * This builder can map resource keys to internationalized (i15d) texts
 * when creating text labels, titles and titled separators. Therefore
 * you must specify a <code>ResourceBundle</code> in the constructor.
 * The builder methods throw an <code>IllegalStateException</code> if one 
 * of the mapping builder methods is invoked and no bundle has been set.<p>
 * 
 * You can configure the build process by setting a leading column,
 * enabling the row grouping and by modifying the gaps between normal
 * lines and between paragraphs. The leading column will be honored
 * if the cursor proceeds to the next row. All appended components
 * start in the specified lead column, except appended separators that
 * span all columns.<p>
 * 
 * It is temptive to use the DefaultFormBuilder all the time and 
 * to let it add rows automatically. Use a simpler style if it increases 
 * the code readability. Explicit row specifications and cell constraints 
 * make your layout easier to understand - but harder to maintain.
 * See also the accompanying tutorial sources and the Tips &amp; Tricks
 * that are part of the Forms documentation.<p>
 * 
 * Sometimes a form consists of many standardized rows but has a few
 * rows that require a customization. The DefaultFormBuilder can do everything
 * that the superclasses {@link com.jgoodies.forms.builder.AbstractFormBuilder}
 * and {@link com.jgoodies.forms.builder.PanelBuilder} can do; 
 * among other things: appending new rows and moving the cursor.
 * Again, ask yourself if the DefaultFormBuilder is the appropriate builder.
 * As a rule of thumb you should have more components than builder commands.
 * There are different ways to add custom rows. Find below example code
 * that presents and compares the pros and cons of three approaches.<p>
 * 
 * The texts used in methods <code>#append(String, ...)</code> and 
 * <code>#appendTitle(String)</code> as well as the localized texts used in 
 * methods <code>#appendI15d</code> and <code>#appendI15dTitle</code> 
 * can contain an optional mnemonic marker. The mnemonic and mnemonic index 
 * are indicated by a single ampersand (<tt>&amp;</tt>). 
 * For example <tt>&quot;&amp;Save&quot</tt>, or 
 * <tt>&quot;Save&nbsp;&amp;as&quot</tt>. To use the ampersand itself, 
 * duplicate it, for example <tt>&quot;Look&amp;&amp;Feel&quot</tt>.<p>
 * 
 * <strong>Example:</strong>
 * <pre>
 * public void build() {
 *     FormLayout layout = new FormLayout(
 *         "right:max(40dlu;pref), 3dlu, 80dlu, 7dlu, " // 1st major colum
 *       + "right:max(40dlu;pref), 3dlu, 80dlu",        // 2nd major column
 *         "");                                         // add rows dynamically
 *     DefaultFormBuilder builder = new DefaultFormBuilder(layout);
 *     builder.setDefaultDialogBorder();
 *
 *     builder.appendSeparator("Flange");
 *
 *     builder.append("Identifier", identifierField);

 *     builder.append("PTI [kW]",   new JTextField());

 * <strong>Custom Row Example:</strong>

 *
 *     FormLayout layout = new FormLayout(
 *             "right:pref, 3dlu, default:grow",

 *     builder.setDefaultDialogBorder();
 *     builder.setRowGroupingEnabled(true);
 *      
 *     CellConstraints cc = new CellConstraints();
 *
 *     // In this approach, we add a gap and a custom row.
 *     // The advantage of this approach is, that we can express
 *     // the row spec and comment area cell constraints freely.
 *     // The disadvantage is the misalignment of the leading label.
 *     // Also the row's height may be inconsistent with other rows. 
 *     builder.appendSeparator("Single Custom Row");

 *                 cc.xy(builder.getColumn(), builder.getRow(), "fill, fill"));
 *     builder.nextLine();
 *
 *     // In this approach, we append a standard row with gap before it.
 *     // The advantage is, that the leading label is aligned well.
 *     // The disadvantage is that the comment area now spans
 *     // multiple cells and is slightly less flexible.
 *     // Also the row's height may be inconsistent with other rows. 
 *     builder.appendSeparator("Standard + Custom Row");
 *     builder.append("Name", name2Field); 
 *     builder.append("Comment");
 *     builder.appendRow(new RowSpec("17dlu")); // Assumes line is 14, gap is 3
 *     builder.add(new JScrollPane(comment2Area), 
 *                 cc.xywh(builder.getColumn(), builder.getRow(), 1, 2));
 *     builder.nextLine(2);
 *
 *     // In this approach, we append two standard rows with associated gaps.
