Photoshop: Show guide when using brush or eraser tool and shift clicking

Hi Guys,
There is a feature in Gimp that isn't available in Photoshop, and I would like to make a formal request for it.

To draw / erase a straight line, you click on the start point, hold shift, and click again at the end point.

I would like it if Photoshop showed the 'path' the line will be on, like in Gimp; some kind of guide line. In Gimp, when you do the first click, hold shift and move your mouse, it brings up a guide showing wherever the line would be, until you click it again for the end point to complete the line.
If this feature could be added it would be much appreciated! Otherwise this process takes twice as long because you have to use the line tool first, and then stroke it...

I have asked on the forums, but it seems Photoshop really doesn't have this feature yet, but Gimp does, which seems a little stramge!

Thanks so much
Warm regards,
