You know how holding the Shift key whilst using a brush locks it to the X or Y axis, can you not do a similar direction lock for any angle..? So as you start drawing in any direction you can maintain that angle. Seems a pain to have to angle the canvass just to achieve this, could be dead handy for drawing and masking.

You can hold the shift key while clicking two points to get a straight line between them. This works to form a straight line of any angle. Not sure if it gives the same effect or not depending on brush settings.
