ImageView should have shorthand creation function

I am looking at It requests 
to add a possibility to create image view and its image from url in one 
step. What I think should be discussed is whether to add this as a new 
constructor to the ImageView class or as a static factory method.

So the options are:

1) public ImageView(String url) { ... }
2) public static ImageView image(String url) { ... }  (or another name)

Unless we expect that we will need more possibilities for image 
specification (more shorthand creation methods) in the future, I am 
leaning towards option 1.

What do you think?
