def word_wrap(text, width, extent_func):
    Word wrap function / algorithm for wrapping text using proportional (versus 
    fixed-width) fonts.
    `text`: a string of text to wrap
    `width`: the width in pixels to wrap to
    `extent_func`: a function that returns a (w, h) tuple given any string, to
                   specify the size (text extent) of the string when rendered. 
                   the algorithm only uses the width.
    Returns a list of strings, one for each line after wrapping.
    lines = []
    pattern = re.compile(r'(\s+)')
    lookup = dict((c, extent_func(c)[0]) for c in set(text))
    for line in text.splitlines():
        tokens = pattern.split(line)
        widths = [sum(lookup[c] for c in token) for token in tokens]
        start, total = 0, 0
        for index in xrange(0, len(tokens), 2):
            if total + widths[index] > width:
                end = index + 2 if index == start else index
                start, total = end, 0
                if end == index + 2:
            total += widths[index] + widths[index + 1]
        if start < len(tokens):
    lines = [line.strip() for line in lines]
