You can already do this with guides - just drag them from the rulers.
Ruler visibility has be to toggled (when working in a "clean window")
but I would say that's less complex and more intuitive than overloading
keyboard/mouse combinations.  Rotating guides after creation is a
separate matter related to guide management, not guide creation.

I don't think current guide creation is complex enough (even when aiming
for a "clean window") to warrant separation from rulers, IMHO.
