If you insert and delete a character at that location, then it
should force the Text widget to scroll there.
My primary goal in revising the Text widget for 1.0 was to get it
working fairly decently for basic editing tasks. The API for
programs extending it for fancier operations is pretty limited
right now - I want to get a bit better idea of the eventual
feature set before exposing too much to application writers.
