Photoshop: Option for choosing distribution of pixels in the transform tool

I use the Transform tool a lot in picture manipulations.
When using the transform tool the pixels are redistributed to simulate a perspective.
But quite often I need them to be distributed in a more "linear" way, as illustrated in the picture.
Therefore a slider in the transform tools menubar. Would be fantastic for people like me, who do advanced photo manipulation.

Hi, I don't know if it helps, but if you use the transform tool on a rectangular mask (instead of the image pixels, you could have the result you want.
But you'll need to unlink the default linked pixels<>mask and then apply the transform only on the free mask.

Ahh.. I see why you think I could do it with a mask.
I should have made my example with a chessboard :-)
But the issue comes down to the algorithm. As far as I remember, the transform tool made a linar pixel distribution in PS 2.6, PS 3.0 and maybe 4.0.
Then it was changed. Both algorithms have their pros and cons. And it would be nice to have the option to use both of them. Ideally with a slider in the menu.
