Need a way to get the bounds of text drawn by javafx.scene.canvas.GraphicsContext fillText method

      Description

      I would like to implement a TextEditor component, and need low-level methods for producing text. The GraphicsContext's fillText method is very performant, but it doesn't report back useful information about the text which was painted on the Canvas. Please make it return a Bounds instance instead of void, so that I can use this for calculating cursor positions.
