Allow image views to be decorated

ImageJ2 should allow an image to have some UI elements drawn on top of it (either in the window frame or less necessary over the image data). The elements could be items such as buttons which launch plugins when clicked. But we could allow more kinds of UI elements too.

This functionality would be useful for at least two commands:

  • In IJ1 the Histogram window has UI elements and they interactively change histogram/image data values. IJ2 does not mirror this behavior yet.
  • In IJ2 the About dialog could have a "Credits" button which when pressed would enumerate the list of packages used by IJ2, the license blurbs, etc.

Since this is blocking #865, which is slated for beta1, this ticket must be completed also for beta1.

This feature is not necessary for a Swing-specific histogram implementation.

A related issue is similarly decorating input dialogs that harvest parameters.
