TextOverlay is incomplete

Blocking: #285


A rudimentary TextOverlay class was added in order to fix a legacy data translation issue. This class needs to be fleshed out. We need to support more than (x,y) location and justification. There are fonts and text sizes and underlining etc. Maybe even text along paths.

Flesh this code out in a drawing package agnostic way. Some of this kind of work was in place for the TextRenderer support. Then support it in a bidirectional fashion across the legacy where appropriate.

(In #1296) CURRENT STATUS: other tickets (#948, #1581) detail what needs to happen to create a text tool, to support an agnostic TextOverlay, etc. This ticket has no work left except to test that when those tickets are closed this legacy command works correctly.

Note: when TextOverlay finished test the legacy command Image > Stacks > Label to make sure it is all working.
