Pango doesn't really have an idea of the visual order of characters,
it only deals with the visual order of "glyphs", so the idea of the
visual index of a character isn't generally a useful concept.

What pango_layout_line_index_to_x and the opposite do are handle converting
from x,y position to index and vice versa.
