	The short anwser is no. Only rectangle objs work as clip
objs in evas at this time.
	The longer anwser is that yes, there is a way you can
do this right now - if you use a buffer evas for your text output.

	You would setup your buffer evas (make sure it's set to
have-alpha). Then add your text obj and add a suitable grad obj on
top of that -- AND set the grad obj's render-op to EVAS_RENDER_MUL.
