Great! If text justification, text decorations (like underline/strikethrough/emphasis marks), multi-line 
controls, etc. still work I'm quite impressed. Also supporting all the exotic use cases for rendering old 
metafiles would be nice.

use SalLayout::GetNextGlyphs()
that interface is a little ad-hoc though and will be replaced by a container/iterator style interface, but 
the changes for users of that call will be trivial
