Line and polygon rotation

QGIS needs an option to rotate both polygon and line objects. It should allow free rotation with mouse, where the default anchor point is the centroid and a plugin perhaps, where one can specify the amount of degree of rotation and the anchor point (by clicking on the map).

I would add also scaling.
Such tools are commonly used in CAD programs and allow for a much smoother digitising experience. AutoCAD for example has also the option to define the scaling or rotation origin point.

The Plugin "Rectangles, ovals digitizing tools" allows to rotate a choosen polygon around centroid by mouse.
The rotation around a free choosen point is a part of the "CAD Tools" plugin. This is a little bit tricky, because the rotated object appears in a memory layer.
Perhaps, the plugins could be the entry point to realize the wishes as core functions.
