I have several issues with the new labelling engine.

- I can only set an angle if I also set x and y coordinates (which I have to
artificially add as fields to my data, since they are only in the geometry
- the labels aren't placed precisely where they should be
- and, finally, as I noted just now, I can't create upside-down labels, as I
have described in

I'd propose the new labelling engine is worked over. I have seen others
complain that it doesn't do as they expect. I can't use it for the reasons
given above, so I'd have a hard time if the old engine was removed.
