You can turn off the grid for those... (for me they are the rare cases)

GIMP is *MASSIVELY* better in the case where you're straightening things
based on a mixture of horizontal and vertical elements in the picture
and not just playing with snapshots of the beach </tease>

An alternative might be to allow the placement of angled guides and have
a "rotate image to make this guide vertical/horizontal" option.

For me, one reason I wanted the enhancement (included in gimp 2.8) to
the undo history to say, rotate by 4.15 degrees, is that if that's too
much I can undo and try again with 4.07 degrees. I do that a lot and
used to write down the numbers each time I used "rotate".

(A "flatten image after rotate" or, "layer to imagesize afterwards"
would save time too)
