Automatic axis alignment

Any chance of adding this?
Similar to how 3d printers "auto level" the Z axis.

The feature starts at 1 minute.

You can write a macro like that. It is simple probing and you can rotate the axes via a setpoint with programmed angle using the G68 code.

Yes, the autoleveler function is also nice, but it is a bit different than what is on the video.
The autoleveler adjusts the XY plane with multiple probing, so the surface can be irregular.
The feature asked for is a simple G68 rotation based on the probed values.
I know you know it Rob, I'm just explaining to Demusman. :)
