Heirloom troff has a .pshape request for that.  But you need to set
the indents and line lengths "by hand" (could be computed by a
simple perl (or whatever) script).

Text in a cricle is also shown in the book "Text Processing and Typesetting 
With Unix"
by D. W. Barron, Mike Rees. But I think the source code is not include,
I'm not sure if they included a link to the source code (nroff had been
used in this example).
