Anyone interested in tackling this will probably need to grok the following


Its job is to make sure that a "useful" portion of the screen is visible
"near" the insertion point, and it triggers autoscrolls to make sure that
the cursor doesn't get lost during typing or keyboard-driven navigation.

As mentioned in the implementation, the algorithm used could probably be
tuned better to deal with trhe kinds of overconstraints caused by viewports
that are too small.

I also have no idea how well it works for BiDi situations, but I'm sure
Tomas does. ;-)

Hope that helps,
