Agreed, and one more nit... if you choose the Large Text/Few Lines option
you can see that when you drag line 3 up, the "insertion point line" jumps
to between line 1 and 2 too soon, IMHO. It should do that when the mouse
crosses the point which is 1/2 of the textHeight of the line. Basically what
I'm trying to say is that there is a zone that is from the vertical middle
of one line to the vertical middle of the line above it that is the "drop
region"; where the insertion line will shift between those lines when the
mouse enters it.

I hope I'm being clear; if not, let me know.

Other than that, you did an awesome job, Scott!
