At the moment the best you can do is to find the bounding rectangle of the
text you are going to draw, draw a filled rectangle in the text background
and then draw the text in the text foreground. This works fine if you are
drawing all your text explicitly with calls to draw-text - but it becomes
tricky if your text output is produced by format onto a clim-stream within
a filling-output for example.
SURROUNDING-OUTPUT-WITH-BORDER already does the right thing.
