Comment:
At the moment I am writing a wordwrap to place text above some boxes and to
make them fit in there. I need text-height for that for not running above the
box on the vertical axis. There is no exposed API to do get that. I expected
TextMetrics to have a height property analog to width and was already
programming with that (without a recheck if this is really existent - foo!).

Could you please think about adding a height property to TextMetrics - thanks.
