it should be possible to change the scale on kruler so that it starts at the bottom (or at the right for horizontal).

This would be useful e.g. when measuring points on a mathematical graph, because mathematical coordinates are typically upwards. 

Actually the four orientations (W,E,N,S) could be replaced by "starting left, right, bottom, top". There is no need for separate North and South (and W/E) if the ruler had scales on both sides.

Seconded, a simple key switch to toggle a "measure from opposite end" mode (bound to "o" or space or whatever) would be very useful. Whenever measuring a bit of a large image that's at the wrong end of the ruler it would save a lot of window shuffling.

SVN commit 907732 by msoeken:

kruler can now measure from right to left or from bottom to top, when orientation is north/south or west/east, respectively.
