[kepler-dev] Adding actors to the workflow programmatically

When you drag an actor in, the outline of what happens is:

  actor = the selected actor in the library;
  String xml = actor.exportMoML();
  model = the composite actor being edited.
  MoMLChangeRequest request = new MoMLChangeRequest(..., xml, ...);

I.e., a MoML description of the actor to drop in is obtained,
and a change request is used to insert that MoML into the model.
