[Bf-committers] Feature Proposal

I think advanced loop subdivide and the viewport behaviors are good 
ideas.  The first feature however can be done simply by pressing CTRL + 
R multiple times so I'm afraid you'll have a difficult time convincing 
developers of the usefulness.  However, constraining rotation of the 
viewport to certain axis would very nice in my opinion.  Especially 
since grab and adding new objects uses the viewport for the objects 
coordinates.  You have my thumbs up on that. (Whatever that means)
