[Bf-committers] New Angle Code

Maybe what's drawn would depend on the selection mode? Angles between
faces could be drawn in the middle of an edge when in face mode (where
the length of the edge is now). And angles between edges shown in
vertex and edge mode. (If I understand the issue right)

Also, in vertex mode, it would be nice if it showed all the angles and
lengths for the edges meeting at that vertex when just one is
selected, That would make using it during modeling more valuable I
think. Then you could move just one vertex as need be and see what you
are doing.

Anyways, just some ideas.
