Provide Control builder / factory class
---------------------------------------

                 Key: CLK-565
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLK-565
             Project: Click
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 2.1.0
            Reporter: Malcolm Edgar


Using a factory or builder pattern to create controls is a great way to reduce the number
of lines of code in an application and can also help standardize your application.

There are 2 common pattners for doing this, one is the factory pattern, for example:

        Table sizesTable = new Table("sizes");
        ControlFactory.addColumn(table, "label", "Metric");
        ControlFactory.addColumn(table, "value");

The other is the builder pattern, for example:

        Table sizesTable = TableBuilder.simpleBuilder("sizes").addColumn("label", "Metric").addColumn("value").build();

Both of these styles have pros and cons.  Please see attached examples.
