Custom Animation starts from center of the object

When you add the new (and great) Custom Animations, the start is always from 
the center of the object.

I tried to make some Glue Point and add the start of the Animation path to that.
It does not work.


Make it possible to link the start of the Animation Path to a Glue Point.

This is an enhancement and not a defect.

This is the most unliked "feature" in impress (by me).
I know that other programs also do similar things but I don't like it is in AOO.
So I was wondering if one just can't adding an offset to the current behaviour.
I was thinking about, ONLY if the drawn animation path starts inside (also at the border) of the shape to be animated, just calculate the distance from the center point and add it to the animation.
This is what I think would be the simplest solution.
As I'm a bad software architect I can't tell how well it may go with the architecture of AOO.
This would improve the possibilities in Impress A LOT.
(for example one could snap the animation path to a point of the shape and tell where this point has to be at the end)

What do you think guys?

btw. the issue 91277 seems to be a duplicate of this issue
