On reflection, since our labels implement AtkText, I think this
probably would be useful, since it would be better to know in advance
whether there are multiple lines rather than attempt multiline
navigation and get "fail" type of result.

Brian, what is the behavior of the Gail AtkText implementors if one
attempts to navigate past the end of the text buffer?
