Seems there is no method in the QgisInterface class for accessing the
new label toolbar yet.



I found the object name for the label toolbar using:

    toolbars = iface.mainWindow().findChildren(QToolBar)

    for toolbar in toolbars:
        print toolbar.objectName()

Which returned this on my QGIS setup:

    mFileToolBar mLayerToolBar mDigitizeToolBar
mAdvancedDigitizeToolBar mMapNavToolBar mAttributesToolBar
mPluginToolBar mHelpToolBar mRasterToolBar mLabelToolBar OpenStreetMap

There's probably a more direct solution than the 'findChild()' method.
