That is something I would use just about every time I use the Gimp. See
this bug report in which I roughly sketched out how I'd use such a
thing (i've refined it in my own program a little, but it's basically
the same). It calls for a three point transform defining an affine
I personally wouldn't mind seeing some such tool completely replacing
the separate rotate/scale/shear tools. I started to develop such a
tool, but I keep getting sidetracked..
Also see this bug report about adding a "free transform" tool:
I've also been (very, very) slowly making a tool to stretch around
images using some form of bezier patch within the Gimp, which is
relevant for the following bug report. Too many other projects getting
in the way!:
