Reeditable text (not automatically rasterized / flattened)
Making it so text is not rasterized / pixelized right away, letting you easily change the text later on.
But still leaving text rasterization as an option.
I'm working on this as part of my Google Summer of Code 2012 project.

Something like this would probably require for the text to be held on a separate layer until you save the file, unless we used a custom format.
OMG! @Thomas Goldstein you're right... don't understand why i was convinced of it :/
Anyway, now there's an extra reason for Pinta to do it: the clone to be better than the cloned :D

@jpxsat: actually, Paint.NET doesn't have this feature either.
Deal braker for me here.
If Pinta aims to be a clone of paint.net this should be implemented... it's a really nice feature!!

This is the key feature that I need before I get suggest my wife uses Pinta rather than struggling with The GIMP
