Widget tickling in JFace

Some of you may have noticed that in M2 we have refactored the way refreshing happens in Table and Tree Viewers so that if you want to access the widget during a refresh you can now. This is really useful for things like using the new SWT owner draw support but also eliminates the need for the plethora of color,font, text and image providers we used to use.

We of course support your old code but if you want to check out our new streamlined code have a look at org.eclipse.jface.viewers.CellLabelProvider#update(ViewerCell cell).

Special thanks to Tom Schindl and Boris (our UI API Polizei) for all of his help hammering the new API out.
