Can anyone point me in the right direction for creating a multi-line title bar for the Panel component in Flex 3?  I know I'll have to subclass it, etc.  But I could use some pointers as to where to start.  Any help would be appreciated.

<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="absolute" xmlns:local="*">
      <local:MultiLineHdrPanel title="This is a long title that should wrap to 2 lines" width="682" height="368"/>

save code below as MultiLineHdrPanel.as
	import mx.containers.Panel;
	import mx.controls.Text;
	public class MultiLineHdrPanel extends Panel
		private var multiLineHdr:Text;
		public function MultiLineHdrPanel()
		override protected function createChildren():void
            multiLineHdr = new Text();
            multiLineHdr.width = 150;
            multiLineHdr.height = 30;            
            this.titleBar.addChild( multiLineHdr);
   			this.setStyle("headerHeight", 38);            
        override protected function layoutChrome(unscaledWidth:Number, unscaledHeight:Number):void
        	super.layoutChrome(unscaledWidth, unscaledHeight);
        	this.titleTextField.visible = false;            
        	multiLineHdr.text = this.title;
            multiLineHdr.move( 4, 4);
