May I suggest the addition of a
drawString method with parameters for font type, size and string. 

In order to achieve usability canvas really requires an equivalent prototype
method, however the established prototype functions take immense amounts of
clocktime and significantly (and unnessessarily) slow down the canvas. The
current lack of standard in canvas makes it possible to include a drawString
method before it is too late, thus adding new possibilities to the object.
