Progress API - Swing extensions

Added support for non-visual default actions for ProgressHandles in headless mode.

Jan 5 '21; made by: sdedic
The default action on ProgressHandle is sometimes non-visual: open a file, focus a result, display an output window associated with the task, etc. Abstract action can be used now with the basic Progress API without dependency on NB- or Swing- specific APIs.

Swing dependencies separated into a new module.

Sep 18 '14; API spec. version: 1.40; made by: sdedic; issues: #247111
Progress API was split so that parts that are directly connected to Swing types were migrated to a separate module.
