Knockout text (transparency) over backgrounds

It would be great to be able to knockout text on coloured / image backgrounds - effectively making the text transparent but to reveal what's beneath the layer.

An example of this could be to have a white button over an image with a purple gradient overlay, whereby you want the text to cut out and show that same background.

It seems there are a variety of ways in which this can be achieved.
