[logback-dev] Nebula Grid migration

In a branch called 'nebula', I've migrated logback-beagle code to use
a nebula Grid instead of a plain-old Table without adding any new
features. There have been a few regressions as a result.
1) slower performance
This should be mitigated by a slower update cycle but in batches. I'd
like to move to producer/consumer model where the grid is updated at
most every 500 ms in batches.
2) the alignment of the WARN ERROR flag is different
This will be fixed as we move to multiple columns.
3) It is no longer possible to select rows by scrolling outside the
Table/Grid window. However, it is possible to select rows by moving
the arrow keys on the keyword.
The next step is to display multiple columns with stack traces
spanning the entire row. I'll keep the list posted.
