public interface PieSectionLabelGenerator {

     * Generates a label for a pie section.

     *     the current font;</li>

     *     {@link TextAttribute#WEIGHT_BOLD} will add {@link Font#BOLD} to the
     *     current font;</li>
     * <li>{@link TextAttribute#FOREGROUND}: this will set the {@link Paint}
     *     for the current</li>

     *     {@link TextAttribute#SUPERSCRIPT_SUB} and
