I wrote something exactly for this a while back, but never got around to
publish it. I just uploaded it to Launchpad for you:
There's a README file telling you how to use it. Basically it's just his:
$ render-text-to-image \
--text='Hello, world!' \
It also supports transparency, margins, and some simple markup.
Good luck, and let me know if you have any comments!
