Depending on what you really want, a light-weight "off-line" solution
might be not be too difficult
to implement as an ipelet: you select an "old" position
and a "new" position of a circle or line segment, and
all positions of points (like endpoints of lines)
incident with the object are moved along,
maybe even recursively.
