Agreed, just wanted to make sure Maciej knew what we already have.

Actually, paintShopPro lets you draw a line, and PhotoShop lets you
rotate to an angled guide, but, except for the difficulty of aligning
the grid, which I see as a separate issue, the GIMP approach is vastly
superior, because you can check alignment against several parts of
the image, both horizontal and vertical.  But yes, it needs to be
streamlined, you are right.
