This is a handy accessory which would be very useful on some
occasions.  I think it should scale with screen scaling, ie a
10cm length should always show 10cm on the ruler.

Have you seen !DrawRule by Marcus Ellenby from 1992[1] which is
just a pair of rulers as ordinary Draw objects.  Occasionally
useful but it's very unsophisticated because it is too easy to
accidentally displace one of the handles.
