This would be great to get into 5.2.

1) Have you given any thought into rendering right to left labels and if 
that has any impact with this. I'm thinking of the new fribidi code that 
was recently integrated. I might just work as you have it planned.

2) If label quality if more important that speed for a user that is 
doing say tiles. What is the level of effort to get good quality right 
alignment? Given that you say right aligment will not look that good 
with the current plan.
