here are some other patches that help with:

  - setting font size
  - calculating proper wrap sizes
  - using leading of the style defined for the paragraph

hope this helps,

with font size and leading I figured out that if you change leading 
within a line of text it doesn't change the leading used initaly. the 
normal paragraph.py doesn't change it too, but I think it would be nice 
to adjust the leading for one line if there is some text in it with 
bigger font size.
