Lightroom: allow clicking on and "snapping to" a line for rotation correction

Rather than require me to draw a line that Lightroom then uses to compute the angle needed to rotate the image, allow me to "select" a line in the image and for Lightroom to use that line to "fix the image".

If the line is straight but on an angle, then just rotate the image.

If the line is curved, then also apply whichever lens correction is required to make it straight and then rotate it to be flat.

The line selected should be highlighted by Lightroom so that the person using the software is sure that the application has selected the correct line.

The "snap" part of this is that to select the line that is used by Lightroom to correct the image, a "selection box" is placed over the line and then Lightroom has to look at the pixels around and inside that box in order to work out where/what the line is and select that.
