I haven't had much time to look at the code involved - and it scares
me a bit :) But I think we'd want to add a new Run class which the
Block code knows about - so when Runs are added to a line it always
happens before the special Run. Special handling will also be needed
for selection and point placement calculation.
More as I dig into it - probably next weekend.
