API addition to SplitPane

Just wondering if there's a case for making it a weighting system (not sure
how useful this would be, but worth a quick thought):

    resizeWeight(Node node, float weight)

Where the weight determines what percentage of the 'new' space the node
gets (and how much it loses when shrinking) and a weight of zero is
equivalent to your 'false'.

Also, need to handle the case when the parent gets so small that all the
'resizable' nodes are already at zero. I assume in this case the nodes with
resizable=false will actually start to shrink (alternatively the parent
pane should not be allowed to go any smaller).
