Use the same behaviour as a file manager does for renaming ...
on the text a second time, to enter edit mode.
I'm thinking this will be confusing, given the number of other things
that are being done using the mouse: Selecting, moving, resizing,
connecting, opening properties.
Having a menu entry is a good idea, though I think F2 is not the right
thing for it -- editing text is not the same as renaming, and F2 is not
exactly "at hand", keyboard-wise. I would prefer something that fits
better in a workflow, which is another reason I'd rather keep the mouse
out of it.
