As I understand it, it would only be dynamic if/when the label is
replaced.  We already must listen for such programmatic label changes,
so I think the GailLabel state should reflect this.  However if
resizeable labels do auto-word wrapping of some sort then we might
reconsider... I didn't think this was a situation that arose in GTK+
(resizeable labels + wordwrap).

After a moment's thought I don't think 'navigating past the end' is
possible via the atk_text_get_text_[at,after,before]_offset functions
unless an invalid offset is passed.  What is the result if the offset
is invalid?

I notice that the ATK API docs on are considerably
out of date, they do not include the "end_offset" out-parameters for
