I have a small wishlist regarding Guides.

  - non-rectangle-bound guides:
       Guides that can be enabled to have any angle, which means that they do
       not have to be restricted to be 0 degrees or 90 degrees (being parallel
       to the window).

       This feature can be helpful, e.g. when correcting pictures, or for 
drawing parallels
       that do not fit the 0/90/180/270/360 degree orientation.

       It would be good, to enable/disable this behaviour via toggle box, so 
that normal behaviour
       will be available and guides can be restricted to classical 
window-parallel behaviour.

  - boundary guides, instead of middle.guides:
    Guides, where the outer boundary of a drawing tool snaps to the guide 
(instead the middle of the
    drawing tool snapping to the guide).

    This would be helpful for drawing in general, and correcting pictures: the 
color will
    not pass this line of the guide, which means, you can be sure no color 
enters a certain region.

  - Adding Multiple Guides
    (there is a Script for this on www.meetthegimp.org, but native would be 
    This feature is good for some repetitive tasks, where a lot of Guides will 
be needed,
    something like a guide-grid.
