Improved Crop and straighten photos

When I take a photo of an old print with my digital camera, it is hard to get 100% parallel to surface, and perfectly straight, so there is some distortion, even with a macro lens. An improvement to File>Automate>Crop and straighten photos would automatically look for a straight line, like the outside edge of an image or the inside edge of a white border, rotate the image to make it horizontal or vertical, but then, it would find the other 3 corresponding edges, and use tools like warp to make all opposite sides perfectly parallel, and be 90 ̊ to their adjacent edges. The user could then crop excess background, or white borders if desired, or that could be an option to automated action.

This would be a huge time saver, and more accurate than just doing it one by one, by eye.
