In general, any widget that uses PangoLayout needs to expose the
PangoLayout object via API, otherwise we will probably have difficulty
implementing AtkText properly (and may not be able to do it at all).  If
we can get the PangoLayout, then we can not only implement AtkText, but
we can get good code reuse from the support utilities in libgail.

This is something to think about when developing text-containing Gtk
widgets in general.
