The newer line styles are quite useful.  I particularly like the "orthogonal" styles.  However, changing the line can be problematic. 

It would be really cool to be able to say "only change the segment I'm moving."  The other segments would not move (but only adjust with the change in the moving segment). 

For example, say you had a "U" shape.  If you moved the base of the "U", the uprights would not move, but merely get longer or shorter as you moved the base.  That is, the ONLY waypoints to change would be the ones on the moving segment.
