Yep, though I think GtkEntry is a single-line entry field, so it
should be easy to do ATK_TEXT_BOUNDARY_LINE...
My vote is that for a widget like this we just return the line if the
"sentence" is asked for,
and use "whitespace" for word delimiters; it's incorrect but I think
we could live with that and file a bug against GtkEntry asking it to
use pango in future... so someday it would work as expected.
As for "what's whitespace" we could use ASCII space and TAB, plus for
gunichars we could check for presence of the unicode "is whitespace"
