Vertically centering multiline text

In old processing.js textAlign(CENTER, CENTER) used to vertically center the text on the specified x, y point even when it was multiline (i.e it included "\n"). In p5jsm, it appears to always vertically center align the first line only. The other lines just follow below. It this the intended new functionality? If it is, then thats a lot of extra jiggling we will all need to do in our own code :(

    So what you're saying is that with the following code you'd expect the text to be vertically aligned around the position of the ellipse:

    textAlign(CENTER, CENTER);
    text("ABCD\nEFGH", 50, 30);

    Probably worth raising an issue.
