I want your JVM :-). I have yet to encounter a Java program (including 
JOSM) that isn't sluggish. (JOSM could be worse, but it's nowhere near 
what I'd expect from a well-written *native* application.)

Ah... I partially retract that. I think the problem is that I'm trying 
to make it work more like iD which permits *selective* squaring. I 
probably have some nodes selected that's making it go bonkers.

Really, this is a missing feature; I want a way to either square up 
individual nodes, or only angles that are within some delta of 90° 
already (and maybe to snap other angles to e.g. 45°).

Meanwhile, I've gotten better at creating scratch geometry to help with 
construction, but I would practically *kill* for JOSM to have FreeCAD's 
suite of sketch constraints ;-).
