Photoshop feature request: Align Baseline

In Photoshop, the Layer > Align menu item gives you options for alignment, but it's lacking a type layers-specific option: align baselines.

If you have 2+ Type layers selected, it would be super handy to be able to align them by baseline, which is very different from align:bottom (because of descenders). As it is, you have to align by bottom, and then manually adjust any type layers that contain descenders.

Since type layers can be multiple lines, I envision this as being another set of three options:

Align baseline(s) by top baseline
Align baseline(s) by center (in-between baselines for layers with even number of lines)
Align baseline(s) by bottom baseline

So basically another set of Top - Middle - Bottom, but for baselines, not pixel edges.

Hi, I did script which can solve it. Download here: http://bereza.cz/ps/

How should works align with multiple lines? I can't imagine it. Could show me image example? My
script now aligns text to first line of multiline text.

It would be fantastic to set photoshop to align text based on the x-height and not just on text field.
