Would it be possible to add an angle function to two-point clipping? Since 
models can be set at any angle you give them in the entity window, it would be 
extremely useful to set the clipper tool at the same angle so the geometry you 
cut can be lined up immediately to the entity's angle.  Eyeballing this 
operation can be a time sapper when you have strange angles like a 33.5 degree 
plane.  It would be nice to just place two clip points in a row on the grid and 
then hit a hot key...say ctrl+z...which brings up the clipper window where you 
can specify any given angle.  Then the second point placed will snap to a grid 
point that will achieve the desired cutting angle.  This is probably not easily 
done, or even possible but it is worth a try.
