I am not sure if you are aware but if you have your tracker turned on, you select node of a slab or fil and start to drag it, then hover over any other node and press SHIFT + ALT it will sett the user origin to that point and that is where you will be measuring from.
Then just type the distance (and/or angle) that you want to move.
Walls automatically measure from the other end.
Not exactly your wish but it is a little something.
