Yep, zooming is complicated. I'm guessing there's a 90% chance the
canvas item will require some additions to gtktextlayout.[hc], which
means that trying to get the item working (at least in non-editable
mode) in the next month or two would be a very good idea. There may
even be a need for Pango mods, though maybe not.

I'd also note that a simple PangoLayout editor probably isn't that
hard to write, on the order of GtkEntry/GtkLabel complexity. So if you
just want a couple of paragraphs of text, that's another potential way
to address this problem.
