Photoshop: A proper ruler, please

OK so to start off IM NOT talking about the rulers / guides that photoshop already has, I'm talking about Actual rulers and guides for brush strokes like Ibis Paint X has where you select two points on your canvas and all your strokes follow that predetermined line. I would also love to see a customizable shaped eclipse/oval ruler.
A great example of this tool in action is the ruler tools found in IbispaintX (the main drawing program I use on my iPad, which is free), but I would want it on PS.
If anyone knows of a plug-in like this PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I draw on Photoshop while streaming and this is one of my biggest gripes. I'm currently looking for this feature or better programs. Thank you for any and all replies.

Lazy Nezumi can do what you need and more, its an extremely complete plugin for Photoshop but you can use it on any drawing or even sculpting app, I wouldn't mind having some native rules on Photoshop tho, still if I had a wish I would rather they improve the brush engine and layer FX performance.

I know of 2 ways that should already work for you if I understand what you are trying to do.

1. With brush chosen, touch where you want to start a straight line, hold down shift key and click where you want to end...voila brushed a straight line.
2 stroke a path with brush, path can be any path form:

see You Tube video etc.
