This feature is already in VTK 4.x (CVS).
All classes involving text have been changed so that methods like 
SetFontFamily, SetBold, SetJustification will be deprecated in favor of 
modifying (and sharing) vtkTextProperty ivars.

For example, vtkLabeledDataMapper has a LabelTextProperty that can be used 
to set the justification.
Something like this:
vtkLabeledDataMapper *foo = vtkLabeledDataMapper::New();
