You're right, that the action probably needs more clicks. but making ways
straight and aligned is not such an often done task, so for me the
negative fact to have more different tools counts more :-)
I will happily integrate a patch which makes two ways parallel without
needing special way design. This is also a long-standing feature request.
You can also make a request:
What do you want to do?
"straigthen ways", "relative to first", "relative to mean"
or something like that.
