Take a look at -- it plots the text using shapes (look for
PlotText).  While there might be an easier way, this one gives you access (in
the PlotText class) to the alignment and path vectors.  Others may wish to
point out better solutions.

I've also recently added a "drawString()" method to the Python suite in, which also allows you access to these parameters.
