This may not be your favorite workaround, but the option to include fonts in application resources is planned for a future release. In the very worst case, you could eventually create your own font proper and include it in your application. I would argue this holds some benefits over text blitter, where you are restricted to bitmap fonts.
Stay tuned for news on this upcoming feature. As for a text blitter plugin, that may be a while unless you can find a developer out there willing to devote his time to the betterment of this program.
