Just to explain the nature of the present changes: this contains very
few, if any, algorithmic changes; it is mostly about moving existing
code out of fp_TextRun and fl_BlockLayout into the xp graphics class.
I am working on fixing any bugs I have introduced in the process.

I am not planing to rewrite the line-breaking algorithm at present,
if that is what gave you the fright; I merely want to point out that
it should go on somewhere high on the TODO list (I think it needs to
be done before we turn head into stable).
