Controlled straight lines

I would like to request a feature as in ZBrushs Slice/Selection/Curve Tool:

Controlled maskbrush/straight/lasso/selection/trim line!

The current Nomad and straight line selection/slice functionality goes over the whole screen.

The “Zbrush” inspired way would be to be able to control the lengh of the straight slice/selection.
Its precision and control make it a valuable addition and flow improvement. Especially for hard-surface and the new upcoming extraction possibilities. I have added a quick visualisation what I mean. I know there is Polygon and there is stabilizer, bit it is not the same within a workflow.
