[REVIEW REQUEST] Add text property to ComboBox

Judging from the javadoc, combobox component could handle different 
types - not only String. I could redefine the skin, I assume, and have 
any editor within it, so, there may not be a text field to get a text 
from in the first place.

Should the "text" property be of a type T and named somehow else?
