Along those lines it would be nice to get a std set of
widgets/GtkActions for things like
    - A combo/menu to select a font name.
    - A combo/menu to select underline or strikethrough style
    - A combo for vertical/horizontal alignments (extensible to
      allow app specific alignments)
    - A rotation / vertical text selector
    - A colour combo
All of these exist in libgoffice/gtk in various levels of
featureness & quality.

The idea being that almost every app ends up with some sort of basic
word processing features for text entry.  It would be nice to make
the ui consistent across Gtk/Gnome.
