      Description

      There are a number of constructors that should be considered for addition to the UI controls, to make their use simpler. This is a catch-all for these ideas (so that I can add them in as I encounter them). This does not mean I want to add all of these constructors, it just means that they should be considered.

      Here's the list (with the new parameter indicated with <> and comments added with //)

      Tab(String title, <Node content>)
      Menu(String text, Node graphic, <MenuItem... items>) // Analogous with ContextMenu(MenuItem... items) and SplitMenuButton(MenuItem... items), which both exist
      MenuButton(String text, Node graphic, <MenuItem... items>)
      SplitMenuButton(<String text>) // These two SplitMenuButton constructors are not available, as they are not inherited from MenuButton (where they exist)
      SplitMenuButton(<String text>, <Node graphic>)
      TabPane(<Tab... tabs>)
      Accordion(<TitledPane... panes>)
      MenuBar(<Menu... menus>)
      SplitPane(<Node... items>) // analogous to API like ToolBar(Node... items)
      TableView(<TableColumn... columns>)
      TableView(ObservableList<S> items, <TableColumn... columns>)
      TreeTableView(<TreeTableColumn... columns>)
      TreeTableView(TreeItem<S> root, <TreeTableColumn... columns>)
