Please review

This in response to an old RFE to add either a new constructor or a 
method to repeat a string, such as "*".repeat(5) resutling in "*****"

There is nothing particularly lambda related in here other then the fact 
that under the covers I'm using StringJoiner.

I'm happy with the name "repeat" but question the "addNcopies" method in 
AbstractStringBuilder -- suggestions welcome.
