Feature request #15807
Ability to set buffer and background to font markers

Font markers are superior to labels (at least for a point layer) in some aspects:
1. They stay on their own layer: sometimes it is the preferred behavior.
2. A single symbol can have multiple of them: no need of duplicate layers with label and no symbol are necessary to show multiple values around a point.
3. Once issues #15804 and #15805 would be resolved then they could be used as nice layer symbols in print composer too.
4. They have awesome draw effects.
To make them more useful for this purpose it would be nice to have buffers and backgrounds for them.
Maybe as draw effects too but draw effects are unable to get settings overridden by data.
So best would be the same buffer/background features a regular label have.
