Specification for FlowLayout class states: 
"... It will arrange buttons left to right until no more buttons fit 
on the same line. Each line is CENTERED. ..."

It is not correct to write that each line is centered since there
are various fields (CENTER, LEADING, LEFT, RIGHT, TRAILING) that affect
alignment of components in each row.
