Add attributes retriever for text ranges
Open, NormalPublic

Description

The Efl.Text.Formatter helper class can set text attributes to a range of text, but it cannot retrieve them.
This is necessary for a Rich Text Editor, for example, where you need to know when the "bold" button should enable or disable bold text, depending on whether the text already contains the bold attribute.
I'm not sure what kind of API we could use for this, should it return a formatting string? a list?
