You consider a proper text tool in the core feature-creep? I find that
odd. Every major player in this software category implements a tool of
this sort as a matter of course and in the core. Do you VERY rarely use
text in GIMP?
Granted, you do mention a plugin, but if you make it a plugin, it will
not be as fast or as straightforward to use, almost like an
afterthought. Should the user really have to open a plugin window just
to add a word? Modularity is great, but text ranks on the order of a
paintbrush tool in importance IMHO.
