Feature request #15400
Better placement of multiline labels

This concerns multiline labels which are plotted at an offset from the centroid. The offset is used with regard to the outline of the label. This is fine if a boundary is plotted. If no boundary is plotted the offset should be to the nearest character, so the label can be closer to the centroid.
A solution is to calculate multiple outlines for each line and determine from these the optimal placement.
