The plan is to introduce a new gfxTextRun abstraction that encapsulates the conversion of text to positioned glyphs, with roughly one gfxTextRun per uni-directional chunk of DOM text, which can persist, and is implemented per-platform. nsTextFrame is rewritten to delegate much functionality to gfxTextRun --- and to clean up a lot of problems that have crept in over the years.

The new text run also supports hyphenation (just soft hyphens for now) and is much better about character clusters.
