Hi Martin,

When you move the new labeling engine to the core - will you make sure
that the capabilities of the existing core labeling will remain intact? We
extensively use the existing mechanisms with data-driven positioning,
orientation, font-properties, color, etc. and it is important that the
existing features remain intact.

I will also try your new plugin in the upcoming days.
