HistogramPlot limitations

Blocking: #1775


The HistogramPlot plugin has its own UI code to support Swing and JFreeChart. It does not interact well with IJ2's menu display and program exit behavior.

For instance when selecting the hist plot window the menu only has the application submenu and no others.

Also if you exit IJ2 with hist plot win open the window will not automatically close. Instead IJ2 will not exit until you close the window by hand.

Perhaps we need to make the histogram plot a Display of some type. This should keep it from hammering menus and it should automatically close on program exit.

Also it would be a good time to build the agnostic charting service and make a swing one based upon JFreeChart.

The current implementation of this plugin is really just a bunch of cobbling.

Note that with this commit 057752ee0f2003fcae72a8ac16a9b33a45cd543c the code no longer has a nonstandard UI. It is a standard @Parameter populated command. However all the limitations listed in this ticket's description still hold.
