The demand for a way of combining various text colors and fonts,
along with other features in gimp text is high - even I myself need
these features a lot.
So, several months ago I started a plug-in to work around the text
tool and provide some of these features, like the Dynamic Text did in
the old times.
I came back to it today, poured in some hacking time, and came up
with a first usefull, if little, version.
create a "text" layer with varying font-family, sizes and colors.
All left aligned.
Edit back such a layer.
The major drawback right now is that one has to select a portion of
the text after it was typed in, and then select the font (family and
size) and color to apply to that text.
There are quite a few other bugs - but I find it rather usefull
