Can you explain exactly what is missing from standard paragraphs etc etc? I
realize we can't yet get a standard paragraph to draw the staff (horizontal
lines) etc etc, but a derived type probably could.
I suppose it would probably be best to create a Flowable that handles your
'text' and knows how to 'break' and 'split' etc etc.
