Is it possible to query a Mathematica graph (2dimensions) 
in order to obtain the height of a character in the current
font measured in term of the units for the y-axis. 
I need this in order to be able to position some
multiline tick labels on a special-purpose axis that I have.

(Note: I can obtain the width and height of a typical 
character in the current font in my favourite  (statistical)
programme I use for drawing graphs and it is very 
useful facility.)
