  I was thinking exactly that as well.  RVectors wouldn't get it though, since 
they're primitive objects.  They'll be detected as vectors and their data

   That's certainly easiest to render.  Is it really what users will expect?  
I can think of many different looks.  One might be to follow the vertical 
justification parameters.

  There is that as well.

   Right now primitives have precedence.  If we use a special character, we 
have to ban it in tagnames, which could break some kst files.

   #2 could also break existing kst files.
