There exist already some code to convert from different "units".
See for instance the convert_position function in graphics.cc used
to convert position rectangles between various possible "units".

Some extension is needed to be able to handle single point instead
of rectangle and also to support data "units". However, the axes object
provides an easy access to the current transformation matrix, so it
shouldn't be that hsard.

My point is that you shouldn't care about transformation at the moment,
but focus on code that can produce an extent in pixel coordinate.
Transforming it to the correct "units" will be handled somewhere else.

Since I am not familiar with freetype, I have no ideas about how it deals with subscripts and superscripts. Please give me some suggestions if you know that.
