adj is not exactly a graphical parameter, it's more a property of text.
grid.text has an argument called 'just' which serves the same purpose.

The fact that adj doesn't work in key is due to my laziness, I just didn't get
around to implementing it. I have fixed it in the development version now.

The documentation needs updates, but otherwise, it should be useable. Note that
only ajd = 0, .5 and 1 will give sensible text justification in key.
