I decided to take a quick peek.  It looks like a change was made to have
charts use mx:Label instead of s:Label by default.  That could result in
some surprises for folks who haven't embedded non-CFF fonts in their apps.
 The mustella tests embed both CFF and nonCFF fonts and thus only see
subtle rendering differences between TextLine and TextField.

I'm a bit worried about the backward compatibility impact.  What do others
think?  Of course, I could be wrong...
