I stumbled upon this and thought it might be worth mentioning.

It provides a lot of extra options for how textures can be mapped to patches, but currently I can only get it to work with Q3A maps.  The source code is available so anyone with relevant chops might be able to tweak it so it would work with idTech4 maps and with DarkRadiant?

The ideas of this plugin sound interesting, in particular the option to transfer the scale of one patch to another, but overall to my eyes there's much overlap with what DarkRadiant's patch inspector can do (I.e. align to the edge of a texture tile).

What I'd really find great would be something to help with aligning the textures of multiple patches together, such as a ship hull or a lighthouse-cylinder which has been split up to make door openings. It might be I overlooked that this plugin does that in some way.
